I love embed code and internet gadgets like that. I could not resist trying this one, which links to my long standing book discussion group, Constant Reader, at www.goodreads.com:
Little Big Man by Thomas Berger
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I read this novel cover to cover over three days in Mexico lying in bed with a fever. Read a little. Nap a little. Read a little. Nap a little. I highly recommend this approach to it. Jack Crabb relates his adventures in the Old West as he alternately lived with and fought against the plains Indians. His fictional voice comes so alive that you start talking back to him.
I am hard pressed to think of any better American picaresque novel.
In the name of everything sacred, I beg you. Please do not suggest On the Road in response.
