Not one of Goldman's better books. 12. April 2000
Von Douglas Silversten - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Although very easy to read, I felt that the book never really grabbed you and pulled you in. Goldman does a good job creating all the characters, but doesn't seem to know what to do with them after that. Certainly shows the dark sides of a bad marriage and its affects on a child. A decent read, but Goldman has done so much better!
The softer side of dysfunctional marriage and fatherhood. 4. August 2014
Von M. Witlicki - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Have to disagree with the other reviewer. I think they missed the point a little. This book is the sequel to "The thing of it is," and details a different chapter in the life of Amos McCracken. Honestly, you could read this without picking up "the thing of it is," since they are distinctly separate and few references are made, but both books are worth reading...

As I said above, I think the other reviewer might need more context. William Goldman has certainly written more enthralling books that draw you in and build suspense and all that, but this book (and its predecessor) is a detailed glimpse into the life and thought process of a young man struggling with his career, his marriage, his fatherhood, and his own mortality. While a quirky character, Amos is a fairly normal guy in fairly normal circumstances, and that, in itself, is why this book is great.

It is easy to create extremes. If you ask a child to draw a demon, he might draw something red with horns, hooves, possibly a trident, with flames in the background. Extreme. If you ask someone to describe an angel, they might give you a spiel about white wings and a halo, surrounded by light and holiness....extreme. Ask someone to describe something inanely in between, something not good or evil, not rich but not poor, someone who works hard but hardly works, loves and hates their life, tries so hard and does not want to try...well, you have a human. A person. A subtle, UNPREDICTABLE character. If you think about it, this takes far more imagination and creativity. Consider like this: an extreme performance like Heath Ledger's "the joker" v. a subtle, human performance like Heath Ledger in Brokeback Mountain. Ask any actor, writer, painter....which is easier? Extreme or subtle?

That is why you should read this. To live a short part of another's life, in convincing and believable fashion.
