Superb. The dialogue is excellent and wholly believable. The characters, or at least the significant ones, are multi dimensional and there is a cunningly woven plot which interescts past and present. Miller crucifies the American Dream slowly and delightfully. Willy Loman, who believes in a slightly warped American Dream (that a man can be succesful with charm and a bit of luck) watches as life takes this dream and crushes it underfoot and then proceeds to spit on it.
