Really, what is all the positive fuss for this book about? It's an engaging read, but left no lasting impression. After finishing the book, I checked out the movie from the local library, and was even less impressed that the most interesting character--Carol, the concentration camp survivor--was reworked as a bit part. I've heard Thompson's good, but this introduction to his work left no real desire on me to read more, though I'll give Pop. 1280 a chance anyway.
