New to Noon..., 22 Dec. 2003
This is the first time I have read anything by this author - and although it is just the sort of book I usually enjoy.. I found that it was slightly weak. The large print and short chapters mean you get through the book pretty quickly.. but I found it hard to feel anything for the characters at all.. loosing interest fairly quickly in the plot. It also felt very americanised to me.( Which is not a bad thing - but also makes me feel I would have rather just read another book by Paul Auster instead, who also deals with human condition/road type novels... but in a far more connected, interesting way. I did not dislike this book at all, in fact, I enjoyed it - but I would probably not bother reading it again.
