Lowboy

Lowboy - John Wray I didn't "get" this book. I know that they tried to capture the mind of a schizophrenic..but..it was just all over the place. I know..I know..I guess that's the point but really, I didn't understand what this was going for.

I had the same feeling reading this that I had when I was making my way through "The Catcher in the Rye". I know that both of these books are moreso about "the journey" and not the destination - but I just didn't see the point.

That being said, I do like Wray's style when he was writing outside of the scenes with the novel's main character, William - his descriptions of his surroundings were excellent; some overall great stuff.

I just found that a lot of the characters were annoying - frustrating even.

Ah well, can't love 'em all.
