I forældrenes fornemme, efterhånden noget forsømte herskabsvilla lever den blinde, tolerante, følsomme Homer og den excentriske opfinder og samler Langley deres eget isolerede liv på kanten af samfundet. Selvom brødrene stort set ikke forlader huset, ser Doctorow selv romanen som en slags road novel, idet den amerikanske udvikling fra 30-ernes forbudstid med gangstermiljø op til tressernes hippiemiljø passerer gennem deres hus og liv. Centrale emner som racisme, kriminalitet, imperialisme og religion berøres gennem deres kontakter med forskellige miljøer. Deres liv kan anskues som en farefuld Odysse i den amerikanske udvikling, hvor de kæmper for at overleve og skabe en mening med deres eget liv.

    " This one was haunting and beautiful. Loved it- might deserve a re-read. "

    " Love Doctorow, not much in this. Overhyped. "

    " I liked the characters and maybe a second reading would help me appreciate it more. I cared for the brothers but felt disconnected from the story. It is like a Forest Gump saga but just didn't draw me in. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shelly | 10/23/2011

    " A book that was really 3 1/2 stars. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paul | 10/17/2011

    " Charming, sweet, but ultimately sad. Recommended. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anna-sofie | 10/16/2011

    " Beautiful, touching, and sad novel about the life of the Collyer-brothers Homer and Langley in New York. Doctorow's language was amazing and the story came out as very "authentic". "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Charissa | 10/14/2011

    " Really disappointing. Didn't need to fabricate so much of the story! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jen | 10/9/2011

    " Started, but couldn't get through it...stalled at chapter 2 and couldn't pick it up again! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 9/27/2011

    " About two brothers and their lives in NYC throughout several world events. Sort of like Forrest Gump, but very sad and dysfuntional. Interesting. "
