Jeff in Venice, Death in Varanasi (2008)
3.46 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: This one stumps me a bit. I failed to follow all of the Mann engagement while reading; without the knowledge of that gloss, the text suffers. Now that i see it i am more favorably disposed. Prose is very crisp, but a bit thin in places; I'm tempted to say tossed off. This quality...

review 1: This...was good. It's the kind of book I wish I read for a class, because then I would appreciate just how smart it is. Instead, I was sucked in by the wit and the plot of the first half, and confused and bored by the second half. Probably party because I'm not interested in spir...
