Thinks . . .
I love me some David Lodge, but this wasn't my favorite. (Though it's more of a 3 1/2 star kind of book.) The novel has strange pacing: sooooo slow in the middle, rapid-quick in the last 30 pages. I enjoyed the combination of dictations, writing exercises, multiple POV narration, etc., though the idea that "everyone is thinking different thoughts!" was hammered home a bit too hard. I admire how, like in many of his novels, Lodge did ample research on other fields of academia (in this case, cognitive science) to get the characters just right.
