Not his best work. I was hoping for a sequel to "This Boy's Life," but this book is far less compelling.

Very nice story. Dragged a bit in the middle, but then you didn't want it to end.

Though the writing was excellent, I found the characters poorly developed and the plot boring.

The protagonist in this story takes on many roles,one is chameleon-like,one the humble student and observer, and the last one I won't spoil but it isn't necessarily a letdown. Tobias Wolff is an excellent writer who exhibits true depth and contrary values. He has earned his way onto my favorite lists,along with Joyce Carol Oates,Margaret Atwood, J.M Coetzze ,Saul Bellow among many others!! Highly Recommended!

Nice quick book. This is on the National Endowment for the Arts "Big Read" list of classics, and I have to say it's been one of the most enjoyable ones I've read from that list so far.
