Book Review



This is a facinating book. Quite different, well written and thought provoking.

The Forward of the book is as interesting as the novel itself. The mother of the novelist goes on a crusade to get the lone work of her dead son published.

The publisher writes "There was no getting out of it; only one hope remained-that I could read a few pages and that they would be bad enough for me, in good conscience, to read no farther...In this case I read on. And on. First with the sinking feeling that it was not bad enough to quit, then with a prickle of interest, then with a growing excitment, and finally an incredulity: surely it was not possible that it was so good."

This book belongs in league with the classics. A must read.

Read this book. Trust me on this...Its worth it. Posted by Hello

I'll bite, what is it about?

It is the story of one, Ignatious Riley, a man of principles and philosophy, who seems to be at odds with society.

He is a modern day Don Quiote.

Through most of the book, he seems to be a lazy, crazy oaf. A deadbeat.

But, to quote Dr. Wayne Dyer, "When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change."
