about Michael Chabon 2006-01-30 16:50:24

I read Wonderboys and found it a little lame. See the movie instead.

about John Irving 2006-01-30 16:43:26

A Prayer for Owen Meany is one of my favorite books of all time.

about Iris Murdoch 2006-01-30 16:13:58

I read Jackson's Dilemma and I honestly couldn't figure out what to make of it. Is that one representative of her books? If I didn't like it, would I like the others?

about David Foster Wallace 2006-01-30 16:10:56

I think Infinite Jest is one of the most overrated books of all time.

about Larry McMurtry 2006-01-30 16:09:42

I've read all the Lonesome Dove books and all the Berrybender Narratives and I love them all. They're hilarious, sad, violent, and moving.

about Frank Herbert 2006-01-30 16:07:07

You might think you don't like science fiction, but the Dune series (at least up to God Emperor of Dune) is a true masterpiece.

about Martin Amis 2006-01-30 15:49:19

The Information is my favorite Amis novel. Time's Arrow is brilliant, but not representative of his other work. Night Train is also atypical.
