Boring characters, no passion
I'm a great fan of Amis's nonfiction. Korba the Dread was one of the most compelling books I've read in a decade, but while the Pregnant Widow has a humorous and welcoming first 30 pages, it bogs down and Amis is left with packing the novel with a host of new characters in order to give the sense that the plot is moving forward. I doesn't work. I read something like twenty novels this summer, including the mammoth 2666, and this is the only one I gave up on. I made it 2/3s of the way through and put aside. Skip this one.
