Love May Fail; Matthew Quick

Love May FailLove May Fail by Matthew Quick
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

One thing I got from this book: hesitate to give a bad review! However... This wasn't a bad book, but I've enjoyed other works by Quick more than this. Possibly it was because I didn't feel that there was anything really unique about the characters, that they were just "types" (Jersey girl, somewhat embittered teacher, porn king turned do-gooder) and thus not people to get excited about. It also seemed rather random at times, as though the author had several good stories in mind, and rather than write a series of short stories he tossed them all into this novel but wasn't quite sure how to link them together in any meaningful way.

  1. If you can't connect with a character, no matter how well-written the story line - it's always disappointing!
