    The Finkler Question is a scorching story of friendship and loss and of the wisdom and humanity of maturity. Funny, furious, unflinching, this extraordinary novel shows one of our finest writers at his brilliant best. Julian Treslove and Sam Finkler are old school friends. Despite a prickly relationship and very different lives, they've never quite lost touch with each other - or with their former teacher, Libor Sevick.

    Darwin8u says: "Meh. This novel ends with a whimper."
    "Tedious"

    Story
    What did you like best about Finkler Question? What did you like least?

    Reader did an excellent performance reading multiple characters with skill and ease of audible identification.

    Book rambles on far too long with little or no story - just a tedious analysis of its three main characters and their interactions.


    What could Howard Jacobson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Edited out at least half of it.


    What about Steven Crossley’s performance did you like?

    His skill in presenting the different characters in a pleasing and identifiable way.


    Was Finkler Question worth the listening time?

    No.
