5.0 out of 5 stars perspiring, 7 Dec. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: A Confederacy of Dunces (Essential Penguin) (Paperback)
Ignatius Reilly is a character never before encountered in literature. The abonamal giant disgusts, humours and challenges the reader at every turn.His repulsion of modern society is frightfully understandable and I was horrified to find myself agreeing with him on many points. Reilly is support by a fantastic medley of well drawn out, scene stealing characters of 1960's New Orleans. John Kennedy Toole has produced with out a doubt, in my mind, one of the finest books ever written. How I wish I could be there in New Orleans and witness the carnage Ignatius leaves in his wake at first hand.
Disturbingly insightful, frantically funny and easily believable. Confederancy of Dunces deserves far more prominent place at the grand table of literature. Igantius Reilly is the ultimate anti hero. Loved it.
