The man who allows himself to be shaped by events--
By far, the best book I have read in the last ten years. The long-ish preamble is actually quite literarily hypnotic. I don't mind the slow pace of the book, but those interested in the brisk read should give this one a pass.
A comic novel. A modern novel. A novel of ideas and more. This is without a doubt my favorite novel and one that both encapsulates and foreshadows the the development of the modern condition. Musil's scientific mind is able to present a humanistic view of the world of Ulrich and the rest of the characters that inhabit this novel. Continuously inventive and invigorating for the reader.
