    The Great American Novel

    If you have the time and patience, I highly recommend this novel. It's a bit tedious, but you'll soon forget. I loved reading how Augie floated through life, LIVED HIS LIFE, and experienced more, than we in society today allow ourselves to feel and live. As he chases after the American Dream, we the reader come to the harsh reality, that even Augie, trying to survive and find himself along the way, can account for more in every aspect of life than we, the self-involved patrons of the 21st century, can.

    Breakthrough book 1

    This was Bellow's first breakthrough book. The second , and one which captured America's heart, and in my opinion the better one ( and one truer to Bellow himself) is Herzog. This book opens with the now famous line' I am an American Chicago born' And it is the Jewish American writer's step toward identifying himself as one hundred percent fully American. It is a picaresque work on a great carnival of characters canvass. It does have a spirit of adventure, but I found it ( It is a very long book) too long. After a thousand turns in the plot, the thousand and first is not that interesting. Nontheless its colloquial language, its Bellowese ,its energy, its zest for life mark it out as an important work. If I were asked to choose which Bellow to read I would not choose this one first. But it is nonetheless a very good book , and one well - worth going at least part of the distance with .

    Stick with this one

    Think of this as a mid-20th century 'Great Expectations'. Occasionally strays and challenges your attention span, but an entertaining read in the end.
