So-so. It was a book about a columnist, that was kind of interesting. I really felt disappointed in this book though. There weren't may interesting messages, except for one character that had moved to the wilderness to escape the pace of modern life, even though he was perfectly OK when had to come to the city. There was some commentary on the role of journalism in society, but nothing too earth-shattering.
Honestly, I felt like there were so many characters and stories that a lot got left out... I'm guessing this one was edited way down. End result = so-so.
