This Book Stinks
It's not because I don't understand the book, I do... [...] really knows a lot about boys, what's with all the naked kids running around!?
A surprise if all you were expecting was a load of little people. I found it became a little formulaic and so got a bit bored.
It must take [...] at least five chapters to get off his butt and leave the house. The giant should have eaten the annoying little bugger and saved us all a sequel to swim through.
The opening chapters are just thinly-veiled homo-erotic fantasies, which may have shocked the readers of the day, but are very tame by today's more enlightened standards.
Totally disrespectful to the majority of military people who work hard and follow the rules. The author idolizes a few bozos who were slugs and took advantage of others.
She wrote about what women in her time lived through: marriage and society. Unfortunately, in present times those subjects can become tedious after the 400th page.
If we really could travel in time I would go back and never have read this book.
Tiresome, tedious, and passé. The appeal of reading the mind wanderings of a pasty, weak pseudo-intellectual grows stale after the first dozen pages.
Who asked the idiot Okie farmers to borrow from the banks in the first place? Nothing more than a product of the 'Hate America First' crowd.
What torture! Avoid it if the idea of mother-son incest turns you off.
Thank goodness it takes only eight thousand years for a little political instability to worm its way in. [...] is crap. It's a bunch of pseudo-science hoodoo.
I found the jumps in time annoying. I had difficulty digesting the part about Billy's abduction by toilet plunger aliens. What is the significance of this part of the story?
A collection of insane ramblings and occurrences... about a man on a search for truth and meaning in the world, but he did this by getting drunk and pretending he liked poor people
The prose seems like a caricature of [the author's] famous style... This isn't really a good war story or love story. I don't really know what it is.
It is upper class British drivel. This book should be dropped from school curriculum.
The only people who should read this book are people who belong to so called 'intellectual' parties, or people who have committed terrible crimes.
