    3. It is often the mark of a truly great book that style is at least as important as other aspects such a story line or character definition I have found this literary quality to be true in masterpieces by James Joyce, Proust, Faulkner, Gaddis, Gass, Virginia Woolf and many other genius literary novelists In fact, telling a tale in a new literary style distinguishes a good writer from a great one in my book So much so that I tend to discount straight ahead narrative styles as mundane and seek out n [...]






    4. Spoilers here This must be called Experimental Fiction, conflicted and preoccupied as it is with equivalent ways of telling the story Let s start again.For some reason author B ll hits on the idea that mindless categorizing, cross filing, a relentless focus on hierarchies and designations an accountant s myopia, of receipts and stubs well, no, there is some method to all that Once again.A book so willingly obtuse, bloodyminded and so obsessively nitpicking that no, once .There are somewhere near [...]

    8. At the center of this novel is a 48 year old German lady, Leni Gruyten Pfeiffer The narrator is the author but he refers to himself in the third person There are so many other characters, however, that before the story starts the author has a 2 1 2 page List of Characters which the reader would every now and then refer back to as a guide.The author s apparent aim is to know who Leni is He narrates of the countless interviews he made upon all these other characters and even other minor characters [...]


    9. B ll likes to play with bureaucratic language and other styles of conveying information that differ from the conventionally literary In this instance, his narrator is clear that he is not telling a story, but rather reconstructing a series of events actually a whole life with a large cast of ancillary characters as if he were somewhere between a journalist and historian He works strictly with primary sources, interviews and letters, and rarely interjects his opinion or at least frequently assert [...]



    10. I really loved this book a lot It is really post modern Filled with the author giving sources for all of his materials on the main character Leni, almost as if he is asking the reader to the doubt the author He even writes au when he wants to source his own thoughts and opinions And then by bringing a host of characters as character witnesses to Leni see the title of the book , many of whom of course contradict themselves and cast doubts on the others, he expands the field of knowledge to a much [...]





    11. this is a truly excellent bookthough it is a novel, if you didn t know better, you would think it was a straight biographyll who calls himself author throughout the book does everything a biographer would normally doews people, checks facts, travels around to get info etc the end of the book you really feel you know the character he is writing about leni pfeiffer as well as all her friends and relatives.exceedingly well done and highly recommended.
