Less: A Novel | Andrew Sean Greer

Mehso-so

I was expecting to really love this instead I just found the entire story to be ok with a good ending. It has many layers but ultimately the character Less ends up becoming like his own fictional character "Swift", hard to feel sorry for. The end ties it together nicely though. #49 #2019

Thoroughly entertaining. While it fell short of the bar set by Pullman's original trilogy, His Dark Materials, still left me looking forward to more. A prequel revealing how Lyra (one of the great characters of lit) came to Jordan College, it also feels anticlimactic because we know Lyra will become the heroine in 10 yrs. Pullman peoples his book with new villains, mysterious characters, shadowy organizations, and some familiar faces. Bk#49

hgrimes I loved His Dark Materials and equally loved this book, it was beautiful. I read it last summer and couldn‘t put it down. I can‘t wait for the next one. 5mo

Book #49: Although I have seen many 100 Greatest Book lists that put the entire Bible on them, out of my four lists only The Book of Job had made the cut. The Book of Job is often considered to be one of the best stories in the bible because of its attempts to justify the presence of good and evil both together on Earth. As I was reading through...

Graywacke I think it‘s supposed to leave that taste in your mouth. 🙂 Cool to watch you go through this list. 5mo
Jazinator @Graywacke Thanks! I‘m still playing catch up here. I‘m currently on book #152 but my reviews initially were either poorly worded or had spelling errors, so I‘ve been going back through from the start to getting everything in tip-top shape. 5mo

Susan is the best beta-reader of dissertations ever in Giant Days #49.

RebelGrrrl I feel like of all the characters in Giant Days, I'm probably most like Susan. As much as I'd love to be an Esther, honestly 7mo
RebelGrrrl Also have you read issue #50? OMG so funny and then so crushing 7mo
NotCool Susan is such a badass, but I would like Esther‘s clothes. 7mo
NotCool Whoops, no not yet. Something to look forward to. 7mo

These characters have grown so much over the years and keep growing. 48th book and I am still loving them. Now I will have to wait for #49. I do wonder who the candy thief is and if Dallas will ever catch them? I also wonder, if Dallas and Roark will ever have a kid? Of course if they did, would that end the series🤔

tracey38 I do hope we get to find out who the candy thief is! Love this series, too. 9mo

#49 in Paste magazine‘s list of the 50 best #horror novels of all-time. I listened to part of it in the dark during a bout of insomnia and it really creeped me out. The horror is subtle but memorable.

Formulaic? Yes. But it‘s a formula, that, after reading 48 books in this series, I still enjoy. This one didn‘t get all 5 stars since (IMHO) the ending seemed to drag on and on. But - am I ready for #49? You bet!

#49 "Open wide and say... mouthwash!"
Freddy and Cara aren't afraid of anything. So when they find a secret door in the basement game room they are all about exploring it. But what they find hidden there is truly frightening. Now they have a serious problem. A serious problem that's hungry... for blood!
