Letting Go by Philip Roth

Letting Go - Philip Roth

It seemed ok at first, but after awhile, it felt like the main character changed quite drastically, without any clear reason why.  None of the characters seemed very likeable, and it all just really dragged on too much.  Time to "let go" (oh ho!) and move on to a better book!
