great review Ben.

Woah. You gotta read his memoir because of your observation about his sense of and appreciation for detail.
It's so good.

Ohhhh, I'm so sleepy. I just read that as:
"because of your OBSESSION about his sense..."
And I was like, "DAYUM"

yes, Ben, I even shared it with a book-reviewing friend who's not yet joined gr...he's hard to please, as a teacher and person, and here's what he wrote:
"A very good review. Felt and human."

What are you talking about, Ben? You're awful with them ;)

Your inner teacher is showing, Brad. : )

I guess i am a detail person.... I love updike. i love all the details that he goes into. for me, that's truly what makes him great.

Cool review. Ben articulates things about himself and the book that I haven't been able to articulate. Details are a problem of mine, too. I like it when reviewers inject themselves into the reviews as reviews are personal. I am not surprised to see Ben list Revolutionary Road as one of his faves, as Yates covers similar themes (as Rabbit, Run) but is more direct.

Thanks, Dan! Much appreciated. Speaking of Yates, I see you gave
The Easter Parade
5 stars. I'm going to have to bump that up on my "to read" list. Cheers.

Thanks for your review Ben. I'm also the kind of reader you describe, more on the "abstract" side. I think it's no wonder that some of your favourite writers are Dostoevsky and Woolf, whom I'd say are both quite vague on physical details and very sharp on psychological ones.
