1.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly disappointing, July 3, 2001
This review is from: Public Men: A Novel (Hardcover)
I do not even know where to begin with this review, so let us start at the very beggining, the jacket cover. I think that there was a mix up in assembling the book that I received. The jacket that I read says that the story takes place while the old guys are in their late 70's and early 80's. What I think the jacket meant to say is that the STORY takes place in the '70's and the 80's. The first several pages do in fact deal with the hero, Willie, setting up a reunion in the year 2000, but that is it! For the next 300 pages one reads about these individuals going through their various mid-life duldrums and challanges.
The last 80 or so pages then get to the reunion itself. I thought the first two books in the trilogy (I did not read these) delt with the time periods covered in this book. Incredible!
I could go on and on, but suffice it to say that this is a sad piece of work for a Pulitzer Prize winning author.
Read "Advise and Consent" and be truly spellbound.
