This was my third novel from Pynchon and i didn't go as well as i expected. In fact i didn't understand anything. LOL.
(However i love reading his novels)
First time I read one of Richard Ford's novels and I have to say that I was pretty amazed by his prose. I wouldn't describe it as an "easy" one since it took me approx.3 weeks to finish it, however I enjoyed every single page. It dealt with rather depressing issues as the hero’s’ big or little tragedies and his failures, his attempt to restart and find again a meaning in his life. I loved Ford’s melancholy and humor, I loved the fact that the hero was an ordinary person, someone that you may recognize yourself in him.
