This book accomplishes a mammoth amount in 150 pages. The entire movement is fluid and effortless in its shifts from sane to paranoia. This is a postmodern masterpiece. My favorite book in a long time.
His best book.
Not funny, not intersesting, the charactors deplorable, and the writing style irritating. I trudged through 26 pages, read the last paragraph on the last page (which informed me of what 'the crying of lot 49' meant), and called it quits.
Kind of amazing... kind of surreal. It is a really challenging story but definitely worth it. It's engaging on several levels, with plenty of great lines and scenes for casual readers. And, if you put the work in to really try and understand it all, you sort of get to live Oedipa's mystery, as you try to break down your own mystery of what the heck this story's about.
This book was returned on Monday.
If you ejoy anything in the postmodern vein, this is definately a book for you. A little bizzarre and surreal, this novel left me wanting more.
References inside references wrapped in references. I’m not sure I got all the references. Not my cup of tea.
