The Lincoln Highway by Amor Towles

I just finished a book that I am pretty excited about, “The Lincoln Highway” by Amor Towles. I borrowed it from my wife whose book group is reading it later this year. I had seen it in bookstores, best seller lists, and book reviews but I couldn’t figure it out but I tried it anyway.

This is a book with many different plot threads involving a lot of different characters. Those books tend to drive me crazy because sometimes the characters are not sufficiently delineated enough to keep me from getting confused and also the different plot lines keep me confused as well. This novel is a like a story of stories. The characters are so strong that I had no problem keeping them separate in my mind and each of the plot lines was interesting in and of itself yet contributed to the overall progress of the book.

So this was one of the books that was a totally satisfying read and was sorry that I had finished it. I’ll be reading more books by Amor Towles. Check him out!

    It’s been a while since I picked up a good book of fiction but this one really does seem tantalizing. It drew you in enough to want to write about it and that says a lot. 🙂

    Sounds like a great book. All the characters remind me of the British films I see here in NZ. There are SO many different people in every movie, sometimes I really can’t keep up!
