Funny, but overly long
I enjoyed this funny and thoughtful book, but would have enjoyed it more if it were half as long. So many of the conversations in the story brought to mind the Bud Abbott and Lou Costello "Who's on first?" routine. Funny, but after a while, it started to lose its attraction.

I am a huge Helprin fan. I loved this book in the beginning..but grew very tired of the word play. There was just so much of it that it ceased to be funny, witty or interesting. BUT--I am still glad that I read the book and found the ending to be quite thoughtful.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
