Is this about the kid, the mom,the dad, grandma, grandpa, Dresden, 9/11, or old Mr. Black? It's hard to tell when all the loose ends remain loose when the narrator says 'The End'. There were so many bits of stuff here that were never resolved that the story ends with the listener saying 'You have GOT to be kidding!'
Too many unresolved subplots. Actually, the whole book consists of unresolved subplots. It's a little like modern classical music in that way. Lots of notes and noise but very little actual meaning.
None. They were fine.
It was in English. Old Mr. Black upstairs was the one character who made sense, But what happened to him? Another loose end.
I hope the movie rewrote the ending and left out the odd sexy bits that really didn't add to the plot. Oh wait, there wasn't a plot. Never mind.
Probably. An interesting read if you keep the historical context in mind, This is a pre-television story. It's probably 8 or 10 years pre-Atlas Shrugged
I have not.
Not an extreme reaction, but I thought Ish was much too easily pushed around by the other adults and did not stand up for the intellectual growth of the group. He started with mid-20th century people of a western civilization and and led them back maybe a thousand years.
That didn't have to happen.
I did find the last portions of the book annoying where the tribe was abusing Ish. I really didn't get that.
