Story was interesting and characters well developed but the ending left me flat. Seemed like Jim had to get it to the publisher the next day and just ended...

The protagonist of this book is truly loathsome: an old alcoholic socialist who routinely peeps at underaged girls (perfectly legal, the idiot author assures us, since he's peeping from his own home). Somehow, this doesn't make me feel better about it. I literally disagree with every one of this character's philosophies and thus find his eternal musings a tremendous bore, occasiinally inrespersed with outrage at his disgusting drunken behavior. There is some small degree of humor, but not enough to justify giving this repulsive old lecher star billing in anything
