"Super Sad True Love Story" by Gary Shteyngart: I'm not feeling the love.

Gave up on Super Sad True Love Story by Gary Shteyngart about midway through. It's set in the not-too-distant future where the US economy and political sphere are in decline and chaos, people are obsessed with social media, and love is tricky. (So what's new, you might be asking . . . ) The novel is clever and at times funny, but it has a real 1984 vibe and I'm not digging a dose of George Orwell right now.
