I'll start reading it this weekend. Thanks for the info. |
: I finished this novel last night. The author has been
: described as post-modernist, and with ingredients such
: as war, technology, mythology, sex and drugs I
: expected C to be a shorter Gravity's Rainbow . It
: wasn't even remotely in the same class, and take that
: as good news or bad depending on your tastes. It is a
: coming of age novel, strictly chronological, with a
: single narrative thread--easy to read and entertaining
: with some interesting tidbits of cultural and
: historical information.
