Having lived through the 60's I still found this book difficult to read and pointless, as discussed below. The aesthetics might like this style of writing but the public reader does not. Why do they give books like this a prize to lure us into reading drivel.
Hard to see the point to this novel, perhaps I'm just far enough outside the target demographic. Found the writing style difficult to follow and had to really push myself to finish the book (an extreme rarity for me).
Could not bother to finish this book. Found it difficult to follow; the time frame kept shifing and I often had to reread bits in order to figure out which character was speaking. Found the whole story rather pointless, in fact (despite being old enough to have lived through the sixties!)
Reading this book requires at least a basic knowledge of the history and politics of the 1960's in the United States. WIthout it, the content in this otherwise well-written book is meaningless and won't be understood.
Either I missed the point of this story or I am too young to understand the 60s. I found this book very difficult to understand, to read at all in fact! The way it was written, the ambiguous passages, the shifts in time and main character. Pushed through, but not sure I gained anything from it.
