it was amazing
Read from March 09 to 21, 2011

This is another one that could go 5-stars for me. I get hung up on the "amazing" part of the review system. Lolita was "amazing." I remember being knocked out by Ragtime and Lost in the Funhouse. This is book isn't amazing, but it's one of the best stories I've ever (re-)read. Wolff has really got his thing down and this is his tightest effort ever (of which I'm aware). Sorry not more analysis, but I gotta go.

Ray Such a great book.The movie's not so bad, too.

Kurt This'll be my second reading, but his Hunters in the Snow collection fired my little book club up to read it (again). I'm really loving Wolff lately.
