I chose this book on a whim. It was at a book sale and I read the back and went for it. Isn't a way to chose a book?

I really enjoyed the book--I truly did enjoy his writing style, but I didn't care for the many loose ends it left. It seems that at the end of every story regarding a man, it was the same ending. I didn't care for the fact that we never heard the end result of many of the people (mainly women) the main character met along his way.

It was a good book and I would recommend it...most

Author for the 2009 book festival. Reminiscent of John Updike's Rabbit novels. Changes voice unexpectedly at some chapters. Set in 1970 the novels takes Peter Sackrider from draft age through his middle age. Ends with chapter INVISIBLE which occurs after marriage and after relationships and describles taking care of his sister Alex.

Picked it up at a book sale. Havent a clue what it was about though after finishing. The unexpected change of voice randomly is confusing and there's no actual story line.
