Larry’s Kidney

Posted on: September 13, 2009

Just finished the book today. It’s an excellent read after an awkward start. I almost gave up after the first 3 chapters if I had something more enticing to cast my eyes on. I didn’t, and am now rewarded for my perseverance. Being a nonfiction book, it has an amazing cast of “good” characters that makes it irresistible to completely toss aside without finding out how things turn out for them. You just have to keep on plowing through the first 1/3 of the book to get past the initial roughness of the writing (I don’t mean that he’s a lousy writer, the first 1/3 is just rough as the author confronts cultural clashes, disorientations, his feelings about his environment, ete.). I think the narration gets much more eloquent as the writer becomes much more accustomed to the country and its way of life, and eventually develops an appreciation for things beneath the “Minging” of things.
