  • Tomcat in Heat Sep 11, 2008
    by wolffg

    This is my least favorite of O'Brien's novels, by a pretty big margin. It resembles Nabokov's Lolita in ways but suffers hugely by the comparison. The main character is not very interesting, his compulsions becomes boring and repetitious (unlike Humbert Humbert's in Lolita), and the novel lacks variety in action and characterization. If you haven't read O'Brien's In the Lake of the Woods, do so. It is Much better than Tomcat. Tomcat in Love is an offense to Cat Lovers everywhere!

    What a fun book to read. Tom is a frustrating type a guy, whose lying mind is slowly exposed throughout his narrative. For women, it's an excellent guide to how a man's mind (might) works. Tim O'Brien is one of the best writers we have.
