Frightfully clever until, perhaps one quarter in, you catch on to the contrived gimmick of the author s hopscotch world reading tour Less s perposterously contrived tour with sexual adventure at each stop, added to his lengthy flashbacks, is entertaining until it becomes predictable and tedious.
Absolutely love this book Less has to go round the world to find out what life and love mean.
Was unable to determine what the story was about quit reading before the half way point Captivating, humorous and genuinely endearing No surprise this was one of author Neil Pasricha s top books of 2018 Really loved the characters, the travel and the mysterious narrator Enjoy Fantastic book about love, relationships, and friendships as Arthur Less avoids ex boyfriends wedding by travelling around the world, but not the way he planned it Terrific ending I didn t see coming that wrapped the whole thing up in a beautiful beau It won the Pulitzer Prize, and you won t be disappointed.
Boring, boring, boring, uninspiring, repetitive, boring, thank God quite short.
Oh yes it is about love but written in such an uninspiring language I have never heard of Andrew Sean Greer and I hope to never hear of him again.
read this based on a best books of 2017 review on PBS I think This was an incredibly enjoyable read and had some pretty philosophical takeaways as the story progressed Really a beautiful book I finished it fairly quickly, which is a testament to how well its written as well as a great story Note that some similarities between the protagonist and me and our life experiences might have tainted my view a little bit.
