A tad too experimental for me. There are some amazing sections, but the complete package didn't work for me.

Fear of Music by Jonathan Lethem
Rate this book
Clear rating
33 1/3 books often disappoint. This one is one of the best books about music I have read in years. Sure, I am a fan of Lethem and of postmodern writing. That might explain the difference in views. I found myself going back and forth between the book ...more

This one is brief and feels like it meanders a bit getting to the end. About 3/4 of the way through I felt like this was a bit of a dud of a McEwan. Stunning language and characters, but off as a story. The end really tied the themes together beautif ...more
