amit’s book reviews

the book is anything but convincing. I am quite surprised that it can be found excellent by anybody

I could never understand the claim that this is a good book. I have read it first time while I was 14 years old and did not like it. At the age of 40 I have decided to give it yet another try, assuming that possibly I was too young when I first read it. Alas - same boredom. I am keen reader of books, in many literary styles and periods, and yet I could not find what was so good about it. What is it that make people think that this is a great book? I wander... maybe I will retry it at 80 if I am still around...

I could never really understand what is so great about this book.
when I was a grown up kid I have read it, and thought it was boring. I have retried reading it as an adult, with many years of reading behind me, with a full version, and could not stand the tempo and the so many very small stories wome of which so similar to each other.
The only positive aspect of this book as faras I am concerned is that it had ispired the great contemporary south Americal author Borches to write an excelent short masterpiece about a man who wanted to write again the book Don Quijote...

Michael James - Non-Stop, Thrilling Adventure
FEATURED AUTHOR - Michael James spent his formative years writing, and when he wasn't writing, he was writing. A mistaken belief that a "real" job would be more satisfying led him down a dark path that did not involve writing but did involve meetings. Fortunately, he has since course-corrected and is back on the right (write? Ha!) path. The Hotel at the End of Time is not his first book, but it is the one with the most Hotels in it. He lives in Canada with his family.
