" While I enjoyed the overall story of Oppen Porter, who is a very endearing character, I had a hard time getting past all of the comma's the author used in order to get the cadence of Oppen's voice across to the reader. He was trying to show him as the self proclaimed 'slow absorber' that he was, but I think it detracted from the flow of the story. Maybe I'm just a slow absorber and couldn't get into a groove on this, but I didn't love the book as much as everyone else. I hate it when that happens. "
