Customer Review

4.0 out of 5 stars Pursuit represents an ambitious advance, 29 Jan. 2003
This review is from: The Pursuit Of Happiness (Paperback)
Having visited New York in early 2001, and being a keen fan of Kennedy, I grabbed his then new work with keen interest.
Kennedy has written his most complete work to date. While his previous works were superb, ranging from travel books, to three well executed thriller-page turners, Pursuit represents an ambitious advance.
The plot centers on a relationship based in the Marcarthyist period in the US, and the principal location is New York.
Having only just visited New York for the first time, I greatly enjoyed Kennedy's description of NYC main streets and avenues that I had only just visited weeks before.
The advance for Kennedy comes in his greater scope of plot and storyline, and even his greater self confidence as a novelist. He manages to very competently convey the issues, concerns and emotions of his main character, a woman in 1950's America.
