Most of the characters maligned in Dunne's books are truly awful: greedy, self-absorbed, and just plain mean. Most of all, they are based on actual people, which accounts for much of the fun in reading Too Much Money. Several critics enjoyed the novel's dry humor and dead-on observations as Dunne touches on one absurdity after another. Others, however, panned it as a tedious soap opera. Still, for readers who enjoyed Dunne's previous novels, memoirs, and essays, there is much to savor within the pages of his final work. Readers new to Dunne's work may ask themselves if the world that occupied much of Dunne's writing career has lost its relevance in today's culture of West Coast, self-made technology billionaires and the lost fortunes suffered by some of New York's elite. This is an excerpt from a review published in Bookmarks magazine.
