I have to say compared to John Kennedy Toole's Neon Bible the main character in A Confederacy of Dunces is a complete 180 flip. From the outrageous and sometimes disgusting behavior Ignatius is one of those characters you just can't help but dislike. Ignatius' story is definitely original and what my dad deemed a 'hoot.' I have to say if you're interested in laughing aloud while reading this story definitely makes its mark. The only part that I don't necessarily recognize as a negative aspect is I debated while after reading the book of whether or not I actually sympathized for Ignatius.
