I keep buying this mans books and I'm not entirely sure why. He's an easy read I guess and occassionaly pretty funny but I still wind up disappointed more often than not.

Bright Lights Big City was just another variation on Catcher In The Rye. Good for what it was I guess but how many men need to do this kind of story for their debut before we can move on?

Model Behavoir was slight to the point that I can't remember a damn thing about it now. Story of My Life may have been interesting if it had actually been written by a nineteen year old girl but coming from a middle age man I find it a bit hard to take.

Quite enjoyed Brightness Falls. The pick of the bunch so far. A much meatier book than the rest with some genuine human characters. Probably it resonated so much because at the time the themes were things that were running round my own head. All up a good read.
