Interesting book... and rated by some as one of the best novels of the 20th century. I wouldn't go that far.

I liked this enough, but to me it seemed a little strange that it got such strong kudos and that it won an award. I found it a bit hard to follow at times, some of the characters didn't seem to be well-defined so I'd find myself paging back to re-read parts to make sure I didn't miss a critical point.

The protagonist, Binx Bolling, the "moviegoer", inhabits a world that is a strange admixture of ordinary life and work in suburban New Orleans and the celluloid reality of the movies. Percy seduces the reader into this light-and-shadow realm with some expertly drawn characters.Binx is happy in a movie, even a bad movie; the reader will be held by this novel, unsettling though it may be.
