    Warning!! This is not Martin & John!

    It appears to be some sort of unedited book about the constitution.

    Just plain dreadful

    Dale Peck has made a name for himself by writing vicious reviews of highly praised authors like Rick Moody, Don Delillo and even Charles Dickens in the pages of the New Republic. Of course, when it comes to writing bad reviews of books, egos will be hurt. Peck has proven himself to be an adept reviewer finding problems in books that are often over-praised. The problem with Peck comes with his own callous, hubris-filled view of himself. He has stated to the New York Times that his books are perhaps the best that the last decade has had to offer; an inspection into his work would prove this horribly false. Martin and John is a near- incomprehensible story about two men named Martin and John that may really be a whole bunch of people named Martin and John. Peck's novel comes off as a creative writing student trying to hard to be brilliant, and ultimately he fails. Maybe Mr. Peck should rethink his own self-appraisal and work on his convoluted plots. He is a talented stylist, but if only it made sense.

    landmark in reading

    This book is a traumatic,gut-wrenching tale of a brutal world touched with beauty. It is something that remains for a long time in your conscience and certainly marked my own coming of age.
