really liked it
Read in June, 2012

Read the first page 5X. Read the first 7 pages slowly thinking I wasn't going to like this book since I really don't like people who can't have a single friggin' thought without verbalizing it. Then I got into it and sitting down to read this book became a treat. I ended up loving Frank Bascombe (most of the time) although he kind of reminded me of someone I know. At times his thoughts about his ex-wife, divorce, his kid, relationships were so dead on I had to put the book down to process the truth.
Have since picked up The Sportswriter although it doesn't appear written in the same style. Want to read his newest book titled CANADA.
