I adored this book. Joe Barrett put an awful lot into this and is incredibly consistent in his vocal characterization of the various characters. This is my first Bellow book, so others who have already been initiated will know how I felt. I was so refreshed, invigorated and moved - in many directions. Some of the philosophizing did go over my head, but it was always enjoyable, and Bellow is amazing at pacing things for the reader. I didn't realize how funny he was - for some reason I didn't pick that up in the reviews I read before buying this. But as well as laughing, roaring I should say, out loud I choked up on several occasions. I'm so excited at discovering Bellow, and I'm going straight ahead and plunging into the next one now! Don't hesitate, I just can't imagine how you won't enjoy it!
