I read THE BREAST and half of THE HUMAN STAIN. They both sucked more than I could have imagined. THE BREAST was ridiculous and unfunny. It seemed like a book conceived by a really really boring 10 year old. This is the kind of thing only the New York Times Books Review would find funny or worth reading.
"The Breast is terrific...inventive and sane and very funny. The trick which is the heart of the book is brilliant...and rich with meaning." —John Gardner, The New York Times Book Review
THE HUMAN STAIN just drug along like pulling pubic hairs. I quit reading it. Honestly, I thought to myself "i am wasting my life reading this book."
Does this mean old people can't write? No. But they should be careful...
PHILIP (too good for two l's) ROTH SUCKS. Stay away from him. He'll probably be dead soon and kids will have to read him in high school. Sucks...
FUCK THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW.
