There's lots of good reviews already - I enjoyed this in the same way I enjoy cheap and quick murder mysteries. I would have enjoyed this a whole lot more if the writer hadn't fixated too much plot line on a one dimensional damsel in distress, and how the protagonist keeps thinking about ways to save her. Urrrrggggggggggh. It made me dislike the protagonist for being such a chauvinist "but not like other men" man, dislike the way the woman was portrayed as needing help (as if women can't raise kids without a knight in shining armour saving them) and immensely dislike the author for thinking this was a modern and gripping part of the story, worth coming back to again and again and again and agaizzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz....

No idea what was going on

Struggled to have a clue how many Thomas's there are, who was who and what was happening. I think this assumes a lot of prior knowledge and context. only finished out of spite - but sadly it's hours of my life I won't get back.

An interesting story about 60s America, loved the travel across the country and the people the author interacts with. enjoyed the narrator too.

Very detailed - but quite interesting

It's a long story, and very very detailed, but the narration is excellent and it is interesting and well told.
