The Finkler Question is a scorching story of friendship and loss and of the wisdom and humanity of maturity. Funny, furious, unflinching, this extraordinary novel shows one of our finest writers at his brilliant best. Julian Treslove and Sam Finkler are old school friends. Despite a prickly relationship and very different lives, they've never quite lost touch with each other - or with their former teacher, Libor Sevick. Now all three are recently widowed, in their own way, and spend sweetly painful evenings together reminiscing. Until an unexpected violent attack brings everything they thought they knew into question.

    " It started out well, but didn't seem to know how to end. "

    " The book was supposed to be well written and funny. I found it to be neither. An occasional joke pops up along the way but it is hard to maintain much interest in Julian Treslove, the main character. Although his friend Sam Finkler's activities cause the reader to cringe, he does seem to go through some development. Julian's love interest Hephzibah is well drawn. The writing is neither taut nor elegant. The book is written at the level of an uncle who tells stories at family gatherings. "

    " Oh my goodness, painful to finish and not in any emotional sense. Time spent reading this is time I can't get back. Not for me at all! "

    " I am embarassed to admit it: I gave up. I haven't given up on a book in a while not since Wally Lamb's "The hour I first believed". I don't like giving up but it just was not happening. I did not like any of the characters, nothing much happened. I am probably not clever enough to "get" the humor or the meaning of the book for that matter. All I know is that life is too short to read tedious books. Still it does not feel right I might pick it up again later. "
