Back to Blood ::::::why??????,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Back to Blood: A Novel (Hardcover)
One of the most difficult things that any writer is asked to do, is to compete with himself. I own every book Tom Wolfe has written and I loved them all; some more than others, yet I loved them all. However, the only reason I keep this one, is for completeness. Usually I finish one of his books in just a few sittings. I struggled with this one for over two weeks. When I finished I felt as I had completed a massive hazing stunt. Re read my first sentence. I am asking Mr. Wolfe to compete with himself and give us anything like his previous work. I pray that this is not to be his last. I would hate to remember Tom Wolfe with such a bad taste in my mouth.
