    " My favorite existentialist novel. Of course, it doesn't really matter that it is my favorite. Nothing really matters... "

    " This was the kind of book that got under my skin and changed my facial expressions for two days after I finished it. I'm not kidding. An existential crisis has never been so fun. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Russ | 5/23/2012

    " Got an audiobook with this and The Floating Opera on it. I actually liked this one better. A really fascinating story, and what characters! I never know how to feel about anyone in this book, which is kind of an amazing thing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lenore | 9/18/2011

    " Much underrated novel of the post-war marriage. far superior, to my mind, than Yates's "Revolutionary Road." A lost classic "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jess | 1/1/2011

    " I don't know why I hadn't heard of John Barth, and this book in particular, before. It's bloody brilliant, especially for a grammar geek like myself. Very funny, very dark and with a spectacularly gross ending. "

    " Kinda funny, kinda annoying. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 3/8/2010

    " Probably a re-read, but I don't remember it. A one-year-old visitor pulled it off the shelf, and seemed captivated. A good recommendation. Easy reading, but with some depth. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rindy | 12/12/2009

    " A good natured and quick read about life (and marriage) in Alaska. And yes, he'll leave the light on. "

    " This was a well written compilation of essays about rural smalltown life. I found it amusing and often wise. "
