[Novel] The Adventures of Augie March (Saul Bellow)

The Adventures of Augie March

A deconstruction and refutation of the idea of traditional American hero that is both thought-provoking and enlightening, but also almost maliciously hard to follow.

Positive: Negative:
Interesting, profound, likable characters A billion things happening in the plot in an almost incoherent order makes the whole thing very hard to follow
Covers almost the whole life of one individual A billion characters popping and disappearing one after another makes the whole thing incredibly hard to follow
Thought-provoking on life and norms of society
Enlightening on American culture and society
