Opaque and tedious,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Letter Killers Club (New York Review Books Classics) (Paperback)
It is as if someone told the author that he was intellectual. He must think that "intellectuals" write in an opaque way, cofusing and over complicating the plot at every turn. Well, great literature is nearly always clear and plain. The central idea of the novel rests upon the notion that the best thoughts come when our dependence on the printed word is recognised. Well this may be true, but he always writes in a obscure, even dull manner. Not for me, mind you I didn't understand Ulysses either...
