really liked it
Read in January, 2010

Look Homeward, Angel was one of those books that changed my life. I read it maybe 20 years ago, and my memory of it now is that it was simply perfect. Wolfe was someone who's work was beyond question for me, accepting that if something in the book was written a certain way, well I was sure he had a reason and if I thought something was out of place or could be improved I was probably not thinking about it hard enough.

In any case, I picked up "O Lost" to see if there was something I had missed through excessive editing. I did like some of the background material from the first part of the book but by and large it did not add (or detract) from my existing impression of the work. I would say worth reading if you are focused on the details.
