Loved everything about it. Holds up to the test of time. Fabulous job by the narrator.
This book isn't just dated, it's also incredibly dull. Each character is a rather unimaginative stereotype, and the buildup to the main plotline has barely begun, and I'm 7 discs into it. It simply can't hold my attention any longer, I am returning it unfinished.
Brilliant! Tom Wolfe's masterpiece, his Bayeux Tapestry of modern life. It's as true now as it was in 1987, when he wrote it, and it will remain invaluable for as long as America exists.
I fear the "internet attention span" will make it inaccessible and impossible for far too many people. Plus, this work would violate too many PC taboos to be published, probably, though it is suffused with the most understanding, loving, humanism.
The narration is incredible. This is the only book I've ever heard that I preferred above reading in the written original form.
R.I.P. Tom Wolfe. You will be sorely missed.
Excellent snapshot of new. N.Y. in the 1980s. Great satire of American culture. The narrator was the best I've heard on audio book so far.
Did not age well. I did not even get past the second disc.
