Bankrupt young woman on an adventure that takes him from the depths of anonymity to the roof of Americas tallest buildin. The author says that his book is an homage to this book I didn t care very much for that book so maybe it s not a surprise that I didn t like this one much eitherIt had an occasional hilarious moment but the problems outweighed them by far the characterizations were muddy and unconvincing and the plot was dragged way too far out for me I almost stopped reading about 23 of the way through

Edward Savio ´ 1 CHARACTERS

Filled with an unforgettable array of characters this deliciously dark and comic novel chronicles the life of an eccentri. This isn t a summary it s just my two centsIdiots is an amusing work of absurdist fiction that is than a little reminiscent of A Confederacy of Dunces Not a surprise as Savio wrote it as something of an homage to Confederacy It is one of those books with a dozen minor characters each with some sort of unlikely and hysterical history or outlook The way these books go the stories of all of these seemingly random characters converge in a complex skillfully constructed climax except in this case the end just didn t uite seem to jell For me about the last 20% of the book fell flat and felt kind of tacked on On the upside the eccentric protagonist who has been nicknamed Satanby his friends because of his fascination with an imagined subterranean civilization isn t nearly as venal and annoying as I found Ignatius Reilly This is the main reason I didn t enjoy Confederacy than I did Ignatius was so well written that I hated him too much to care what happened to him Satan is a little easier to empathize with Sadly though the author seems to have a serious problem with homonyms in nearly every chapter substituting words that sound the same but have different spellings and meanings eg waverwaiver toetow oh and heroineheroin Maybe it was supposed to be clever if so I did not get the joke and it drove me absolutely bonkers Dude you have to read it not just turn on the spell check function The editor should be tarred and feathered and the author should spend some serious time with flashcardsMostly it is a funny and well crafted story whose author shows signs of eventually becoming great

    I really love this book I have to say after a great start it took a couple of chapters for it to really get moving but you realize it's setting up the payoffs I love the twisting turning language It's just delicious I kept laughing out loud reading this on the plane I had to apologize to the guy next to me I spit part of my crappy b

    I first read this manuscript in 1991 I knew then I was reading something very special I was sucked into the imagery and the tone right away making my way through his world through the eyes of Satan It's about a guy who wears tinfoil on his head thinks people live in the center of the earth he's not totally crazy he's just a little off Some w

    I could not finish this book It's totally derivative of the far superior A Confederacy of Dunces from the homage of the opening scene to the characters themselves obviously caricatures of the portraits John Kenned
