my fav book   (2020-10-30)

This is my favorite book this year. In fact, I'd place it as one of my all-time favorites, ever.

 it's chock-full of quirky characters, striking juxtapositions, and ideas that will give your brain a tickle.  Toltz is a generous writer who never takes the easy path of moving a plot along by means of a plain, unadorned sentence. Instead, he packs it full of what one reviewer called "verbal dynamite," and another described as "a juggernaut of words."

I'd like to include some excerpts from the book to use as examples of what I mean, but I listened to this in audio format, and I don't at present own a printed copy. That being the case, I'll mention that the I highly recommend the audiobook, and I will probably listen to it again in a few months, something I have never done before. Further, I'll probably buy the book, so I can savor the writing at my leisure.

I can't recommend this book highly enough. If you like reading books that are imaginative, humorous, philosophical, irreverent, moving, eccentric, original, reflective, or down-right fun, well, this is the book for you.
