Being just a no-name uncredentialed reader, I know what I like, and I know what I don't. The protagonist was NOT a likable character. For me, Bondurant was not three-dimensional. His character seemed cliché from the start -- the absent-minded professor type who chases after young things in tight skirts. Good gosh, do professors do anything else on campuses these days, or shall we devote an entirely new genre to them? Yawn.
If I could change Bondurant, I would wish for him to develop further, perhaps by offering the reader snappier dialogue peppered with sharper humor, or some other qualities along those lines that would overshadow his vanity and arrogance.
Didn't exactly like the ending, or rather where it ended, as it felt like a classic set-up for the next book. (Also, all the name-dropping in the Acknowledgements at the end seemed excessive. Got it! You're well-connected. Congrats. Don't be such a Bondurant about it.)
That said, I will probably engage my money in buying the sequel to this novel, with the hope that Bondurant becomes all the man that he could be. Certainly, Mr.Heubusch, you possess the credentials needed to pull that off. Now get to work! ( BTW, you can thank your friend Levin for spending valuable air-time on mentioning this novel, as that is what brought me to purchase it. As usual, Levin was correct with his assessment.)
What a talent. Five stars. Bravo Zulu.
