A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole
rating: 3 of 5 stars
Honestly, I was disappointed with this book. I had heard great things about this book, but found it to be a meandering mess of could-have-been-comical characters. I do have to admit that the main character of Ignatius was an interesting and familiar character, although not one often seen in fiction, just real life. The story just seemed to wander at times, watering down the humor and leaving this an unsatisfying read. This probably would have been improved if an editor could have forced the author into some heaving trimming and honing.
