I loved some of Tom Wolfe's earlier novels but I feel his writing in this book is not as good.
Reading it, I felt that the book was going to go on for another hundred pages or so, however it literally ended in about two pages after much buildup.
I found this work to be overly wordy, weakly plotted, characters that were not well developed and the story was left with little resolution.

Great 1st chapter, then it fizzles. Especially annoying are every passage about sex and women's bodies. As a straight guy, I think Tom Wolfe is just icky.Published 1 month ago by Thomas

I am halfway through the book. The punctuation is a sheer nightmare but I appreciate that Tom Wolfe recognizes racial tensions in America and the book is very funny. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Melissa M. Franckowiak
