Being a child of the nineties I have misperceived the hippy era and the idea of communal living, almost thinking about it in a mystical way. Boyle's book really enlightened me on how living outside the straight world really was. Maybe all about peace and free-love, but definitely had problems of its own. I also liked learning about surviving the winter in the harsh Yukon Territory. It was great to see the characters evolve and I think anyone can definitely relate to their ideas and aspirations. I will read more of Boyle's books because this one was truly a gem.

No one creates characters quite like TC Boyle. Back country Alaskins or Californian hippies... you just really care about these cats and chicks. TC Boyle is clearly the most under apreciated american writer of our age , in my opinion. Read this book. You won't be disapointed.

I have just finished reading Drop City, and I have nothing bad to say about this book. Boyle does a great job of introducing the characters and the scene. The whole time I was reading the book I couldn't wait to see what was going to happen next. It gives a great look at the way some people of lived their lives outside of the 'straight' world, with nothing but drugs, sex, and free love on their mind. I would recommend this book to anyone who just wants to get lost in a book for a little while. It was definatley a page turner!!

I just picked this book out and I really liked it! It was a really good book and I recommend this to anyone. Boyle really gets into it. There's a lot of detail about the characters. All the characters have problems but seem to get on with life. When Drop City relocates to Alaska, thats when all of their problems begin, with Drop City and other people in Alaska. This was an intresting novel. I really enjoyed this book and I would definately read another one of his books.

T. C. Boyle's _Drop City_ requires neither praise nor introduction. It is easily one of the most entertaining profiles of a generation and the way of life that set it apart. _Drop City_ is to hipster culture as _Neuromancer_ is to the psychosexual broadband revolution on the horizon.

This is Boyle's best yet, and I don't say that lightly. This really is an amazing book, and in no small way that's because so much is so beautifully packed in here: number one, this book is a page-turner, but also there is some scathing social commentary, true romance, sex, drugs, rockinroll, gruesome death, hippies, crazy Northern Exposure types, intertwining story lines and the unflinching Boyle humor we've come to love. These characters just jump off the page, and you won't be able to put this book down. Trust me.
