I have to say that I was glad that I did not read all the reviews for David Lodge's novel Thinks, as I do not think that I would have bothered to read it, as it would appear to be predictable, and not a very good campus novel. I enjoyed it, even if I did struggle to get my head round some of the cognitive science. Yes it did remind me a little of The History Man, but that's ok. I liked Ralph getting his comeuppance with his daliances towards the end of the book, but I believe novels are meant to be read to be enjoyed, and expand your imagination, and I certainly enjoyed this novel, and keeps David Lodge as one of my favourite authors, because he writes about aspects which seem to actual;ly occur, and you can identify with. A good read.
