5.0 out of 5 stars David lodge has exceeded high expectations, 6 Aug 2001
This review is from: Thinks (Hardcover)
Opening the first page of the newest offering produced by an author whose work has become familiar and enjoyed for its wit and canny observation of the human experience is an event charged with both anticipation and the fear of disappointment. When judged against his other works, David Lodge has exceeded high expectations with this tale of tangled relationships and illicit love in the world of academia. His original approach adopts the traditional narrative and combines this with witty first person recollections of the two main characters. This book explores the familiar voice of consciousness as an ever present feature of our lives, the dilemas that face us and the etrenal problem of finding out what the other person is really thinking. Happily, 'Thinks' proved to be one of those books that completely absorb the reader so completely that they are swept along until they emerge all too quickly at the concluding page. This is another david Lodge volume to claim a place on the bookshelf - to be enjoyed again and again.
