I thought it was all right, but nothing very special. I probably missed the point, but got bored after 12 chapters of pretty much the same stuff with no point in sight. Good writing and character work, but no plot I could detect.
Dick Thornton’s book reviews
Not for me. I found it dull and tedious with a lot of multi-page dialog that said essentially nothing. Only made it about 20% through.
I found this a very humorous book about college life. Although it took place long ago, the author describes his characters and scenes very well, and gives you a variety of amusing tales.
A delightful little tale that will specially appeal to anyone who feels alienated from his//her culture.
I found this book to be very flowery and wordy. Probably an excellent work from a bygone era, but not my cup of tea.
Mr. Leiber is one of my favorite SF writers of old, so it is painful to have to say this is not a very good story, in my opinion. It started out pretty well, but the dialog and repetition began to bore me so that I had almost given up by the halfway point. But about there, it got a bit more interesting for a little while, so I continued, but it went downhill to a lackluster ending.
