Thought Provoking

by Patricia L on Oct 21, 2010

Development of male characters is strong and in depth; however female characters seem unreachable. I especially loved the author's rich language.


Great Book!

I just finished reading this book and loved it! Tom Wolfe does a fantastic job of letting the reader in on the world of great NYC riches in the 80's. Although the book is described as being humorous, I found it to more enlightening in how race relations were portrayed in the 80's between the mega rich and the very poor. Overall, a very good read!
