First book by Bellow I've read. Written in the stream of consciousness style about the meaning of life. Good short book,

Great series


The Devil and Miss Prym (P.S.)
Review Date: 5/7/2013


Very thought provoking book about the nature of good and evil. I read Coelho's book "The Alchemist" which is supposed to be his best work but I have found that The Devil and Miss Prym and Veronica Decides to Die much better books. Perhaps this is because they are mostly from the women perspective. This book will keep you thinking about it for a long time

Parts were great but I think that it is difficult to relate to given that it was written in the 60's.

Funny book, lots of amusing characters but didn't think it was as good as The Bear Went Over the Mountain. Kotzwinkle is great fun.
