Customer Review

5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous sci-fi western bildungsroman--what else?, 30 Aug. 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Girl in Landscape (Vintage Contemporaries) (Paperback)
"Gorgeous" is the adjective that kept coming to mind after reading this. A great hybrid of science-fiction, western and coming-of-age novels (a sort of post-bildungsroman story). I really cannot understand why other readers found the grown-ups in the novel two-dimensional. They were absolutely real, and Efram Nugent is a bigger-than-life character that reaches mythical status. One should thank Lethem for his ability to show how surrealistic the United States can be. And his absolutely perfect, terse style, that is getting better and better as he goes on! After this, one wonders what comes next... definitely one of the best novels of the 90s.
