I was happy to see Mortals at the library, after enjoying Norman Rush's first novel, Mating, so much. The first 2/3 of Mortals took me forever to read - I couldn't relate to the characters and did not find them likeable. But I found myself thinking about them a lot in spite of that, so it seemed worth continuing on. When the plot finally picked up, reading the story became enjoyable. I love Rush's use of language and moments of absurd humor.
