Worst Print Ever
Every 2 pages there was a typo. Not even an exaggeration. The book was very difficult to enjoy because this particular print was so bad. There were misspellings, random numbers after words and various apostrophes scattered throughout. Many Cs instead of Gs, etc.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Eh, it's ok
Full of symbolism and all that good stuff that makes it a timeless classic and an eye into a time period younger generations haven't experienced. Not extremely interesting or developed in the sense of plot though. If you read this book read it slowly.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

A look back with outdated words & good insight.
I wanted just to read something easy and get rid of the boredom. I started reading the Introduction by Richard B. Gehman, found it interesting and decided to skip it and start reading. I found it readable and serious. The first paragraph is very engaging. To write a novel about movies with exotic and perhaps, meaningless props is an interesting metaphore for the benefits of modern entertainment and for our desire for continual instant gratification and the following sadness. 'He would never again do a fat red barn, old stone wall or sturdy Nantucket fisherman. ...despite his race, training and heritage, neither Winslow Homer nor Thomas Ryder could be his masters and he turned to Goya and Daumier.'
