Roth lets himself down, too clever and in the end boring.,

This review is from: The Counterlife (Paperback)
I've read and loved many Philip Roth books, The Human Stain, American Pastoral etc. But this book was disappointing because it was so confusing and "clever". As you read you are never sure if you are reading the invented story or a brother about another brother or the confessions of one brother to another, or lies lies lies.
Which means that, in the end, you don't care what happens.
