it was amazing
bookshelves: non-tech, fiction, read_2019

The writing in this satire is so good. Tom Wolfe tells a great story full of symbolism, allusions, and metaphors. There are some amazing passages where you can feel the anxiety of the characters.

I highly recommend this book.

Douglas The fact that a particular one of my exes *hated* this book is enough to put it on my Want to Read list ;-)
