lovely, to be read slowly
Beautiful book (including cover illustration and nifty line drawing at each chapter title)! I tried to decipher who the heck narrator is (- one of Less’s former crush, final spouse?), until “Less At Last”...what a bummer. All the luck upon the Ar/uthur - all things Less! I turned my envy about fragile sentiment to jealous over saccharine romance, wish to sprinkle bitterness to be more palatable.
I loved this book! It felt so fresh and surprising. Greer’s word choice made me grin with delight over and over again. Everything about it felt inventive, from the choice of narration to the ingenious metaphors and imagery. It was a wry, warm and witty examination of aging, writing, and relationships. When I finished it I wanted to hug the book and then start rereading it. I listened and read it simultaneously and Robert Petkoff did another great job as reader. Listening to Less tickled my ears and woke my mind. Reading Less warmed my heart. I haven’t read any other reviews, and even though I know this must have been written many times already, I can’t help myself; Less is more.
“Less” is irresistible! Quickly approaching his 50th birthday, disappointed in love, fearing failure in his career, Arthur Less takes a trip around the world. Hilarious, heartwarming and witty!
Adored this book SO MUCH. Loved Arthur Less. Loved the extremely satisfying storyline. ADORED the lavish, witty language. Most of all, laughed my head off. Did not want it to end.
I almost gave up on this book. But then I realized that I had so much in common with Arthur Less. Really, really, liked this book.
Arthur Less is turning 50 and he fears this milestone, so what does this quirky gay man do but go on a trip around the world. He had me cheering as he struggles to meet the tasks expected of him. I laughed and cheered as he turned 50 and searched for love.
Arthur Less is having a midlife crisis. The book isn't written from his POV which is an interesting choice by the author and there is something authentic and sincere about this novel. Arthur feels like a real person with the same insecurities we all have as we start to get older. Over all, it's a rather short read, reflective and hilarious. I liked it a lot.
