did not like it
Read from March 04 to 20, 2011

With Chronic City, Lethem shows he's a real disappointment artist. It does get slightly better towards the end, and the Manhattan he conjures grows into one I would've liked to spend more time in - just not with the characters he's chosen to align with. And those interminable letters! It really makes me wonder if he blew all his talent on The Fortress of Solitude.

MacDara Conroy Just borrowed this from the library in Blanchardstown. Which is awesome, by the way. Self-service kiosks like Star Trek or something.
