This review is from: The Sot-Weed Factor (Paperback)
Ebenezer Cooke is one of the most moving and endearing characters I've ever come across. The picaresque tale of his hapless adventures will have you laughing out loud at times, and deeply sympathizing with his troubles at the same time. Barth's language is superb too: of course it's not really how people spoke in those days, but it feels ever so right.
Thick as it may be, you'll wish this novel had twice as many pages to enjoy!
