I'm a huge fan of Tom Wolfe and have read everything he has written with relish. As expected, the carefully observed culture and characters are central to a web of story that twists and leaps with wit and surprise.
Not expected was the repetition of phrases and descriptions such that I kept wanting to hit the fast forward button to get to the next paragraph. Wolfe is known for his verbosity but I don't recall such repetitiousness in previous efforts. A ruthless editor could have saved a good 10% of my time to the benefit of what otherwise is a fascinating and enjoyable read.
Everything... The story... the dialog... the narrator
Not slept through her introduction to writing fiction class.

Anger at wasting my credit
I worry for my country and culture if this is what passes for popular. Oh... right... I forgot that is why I don't watch television.
