a perfectly crafted lightweight read,
By A Customer
This review is from: Amsterdam (Paperback)
After reading all of the poor reviews of this book online and remembering the controversy at the booker ,I felt the balance needed redressing . It's major triumph is in its completeness and levity ,so many books are almost great or have great openings or sections but let you down with a poor ending or a feeling of dissatisfaction .In contrast to this Amsterdam sets its stall out as a humourous beguiling and essentially lightweight book with no great pretensions and more than acheives this.It may not leave you pondering any grea issues but it certainly works as a complete reading experience.
