2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing !!, 23 May 2003
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: O-Zone (Paperback)
After reading 'Mosquitoe Coast' which I liked very much,I wanted to try another novel and I chose 'O-Zone'. Although the basic idea is good, I am really disappointed with the story as a whole. Paul Theroux could have done a lot better. It feels like the author was motivated by his own story at the beginning and then ran out of real ideas. The book is far too long, divided into chapters where nothing really happens He keeps jumping from one or more characters to the other(s). There is no real flowing in the story and I enjoyed only one bit of it: when Fizzy gets kidnapped by 'aliens'(good chapter!). I don't know if I am going to finish up to the end as I have started a new boring chapter, a cliché love story between Hooper and Bligh. My goodness, this book is really hard going!!
