Great writing, but such a simple story
on 10 December 1999
There is some very good dry wit in this book, together with some insightful writing.
However, the plot is totally uncomplicated, or even simple, and fails to deliver any challenges to the reader.
Block didn't do enough wrong to earn an entry in my "Don't touch again" list, but I'm not sure that I'd race out and buy his latest straight away either.
