Read full description of the books:
Sometimes I'm baffled by the average scores on goodreads--this is one of those times. I only finished this awful book just to unleash a rare one star review!
This was just terrible, from start to finish, which was kind of a surprise because I've read a few other Berger books (Being Invisible, Neighbors, Little Big Man) and enjoyed those a lot. Same direct Berger style but the story of a man who is accidentally drawn into a hellish day of crime he can't get out of absolutely drove me crazy.
Frankly, the lead character (John) is a complete and utter moron. It's hard to take when Berger paints each person in this book so one-note, obvious, naive and simpleminded. John never gains any smarts the entire story no matter what has gone down. Ugh. Let me say it again: ugh!

Read information about the authorThomas Louis Berger is an American novelist. Probably best known for his picaresque novel Little Big Man and the subsequent film by Arthur Penn, Berger has explored and manipulated many genres of fiction throughout his career, including the crime novel, the hard-boiled detective story, science fiction, the utopian novel, plus re-workings of classical mythology, Arthurian legend, and the survival adventure.
Berger's use of humor, and his often biting wit have led many reviewers to refer to him as a satirist or "comic" novelist, descriptions he prefers to reject.
His admirers often bemoan that his talent and achievement are so under-appreciated, in view of his versatility across many forms of fiction, his precise use of language, and his probing intelligence.
