T. C. Boyle has an intelligent and descriptive writing style and he is a celebrated, award-winning author. Much can be expected of a novel whose author holds these credentials. Drop City one of the best books I've read this year. I liked his narratives and his subject matter. I laughed and smiled the entire way through the book. Parts of the book are hilarious and some are just amusing, but it all adds up to a fun read. Plus, I learned some new words because the language is so complex! I recommend this book to readers who are tired of commercial fiction and love a good literary read.
