Customer Review

3.0 out of 5 stars It's just OK, Jan. 10 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Hopscotch: A Novel (Paperback)
Oliveira is completely lost, and so are Etienne, Gregorovius and the rest of the Club. Problem is they all talk like one person, you can hardly see the difference. And Cortazar as well. They use the same terms and are -not close as you may think- but very far from their feelings, in a pointless, cocky and false metaphisic adventure. Book goes bad up to chapter 21. Then, in chapters 79 and 22 has a chance to get through, but loses it. Rest of the book is mere distraction for the reader not to realize the failure of the author. Cortazar knows (as Morelli) what is needed to write a great novel, but he can't do it.
