I read this at the behest of a reading list and because its mentioned so frequently in conjunction with George Lucas' storytelling. It contains some great prose, but I didn't find it so engaging or insightful as to want to re-read it in a few years.

I was planning on reading this soon. I picked it up a couple weeks ago and my first impression was luke warm. Your review has confirmed my first impression.


I tried reading it on a trip a few weeks ago and couldn't get into it.


At least I'm not the only one who found it a tough finish ;)

Interesting. Glad I'm reading it. Not particularly impressed, though; I wouldn't continue if I weren't reading it concurrently with a friend.

Finished it, and I have the same impression I had while reading it. Interesting, and beautifully written, but hollow and sad.
