    I don t recommend this for anyone Though the dated language, horrible dialogue, amazingly specific metaphors, and introduction of new characters throughout the book made for a pretty entertaining read So they d ridden down to town, and that was how she met the good looking fellow with the paper fans All right, he said That s enough lemonade His tongue felt like a shoe that had been kicked into the back of a closet somewhere and left there for years and then, for no reason, put into his mo I don t recommend this for anyone Though the dated language, horrible dialogue, amazingly specific metaphors, and introduction of new characters throughout the book made for a pretty entertaining read So they d ridden down to town, and that was how she met the good looking fellow with the paper fans All right, he said That s enough lemonade His tongue felt like a shoe that had been kicked into the back of a closet somewhere and left there for years and then, for no reason, put into his mouth And it wasn t even his own shoe It felt like a size 14 EEE.He stepped out of his patent leather dancing pumps, drew off his socks, and took off his shorts They he joined her in the bad He could not have said why he expected his maneuver to work, much less how he expected it to work, but it felt right, and whether it is that happy people arein tune with the pulse of the world s workings or that people who are happy are blessed, or lucky, it is nevertheless true that he had the confidence at that moment to trust his impulse Harry Novotny had done well for himself, or the world had done well by him The new television shows, with talking dogs, horses, porpoises, and mules, had kept him busy.She had gone to the beach with them, and driven along on the Palisades Highway to look down on the sand and spy out the sleeping bags they were always sure to find, writhing like beached dugongs Bill invited the girls over to his house that evening for a modest blast, as he put it There was somehow, in some way, a vibration, an intonation, a resonance, however faint, that led Melissa to suspect that in another country, and at another time, Miss Preston might have been courting her, rather than herself courting one of Miss Preston s students The audience laughed and applauded, and it was like drinking champagne to hear them but better, as if one ignored the gross liquid and drank only the pure bubbles.the effect of the meeting was that of a waterfall s turbulence meeting the calm water of a mountain pool and setting up a curtain of mist which, in the right light, discloses a rainbow.She told Merry that Novotny had been slashed to death by and ostrich He stroked his beard, but it did not entirely hide the smile which his gesture had been intended to conceal It was the cat who swallowed the canary smile And it was funny to see it on the canary Go have a hamburger somewhere Some coffee shop Or a hot dog at Chock Full o Nuts In two months you won t be able to do that any .That huge, obscene picture, those larger than life size genitals, had changed things She had seen too much He got out at Astor Place to take a fencing lesson She went on to Columbus Circle for a body movement class They were a tangle of arms and legs and bodies, a sexual kaleidoscope in which each new design wasfascinating than the one that had gone before it.Love made one feel beautiful, she reflected the following morning as she looked into her mirror, but she wasn t sure that it actually made one look one s best You ve been seventeen kinds of fool The womb of agreement seemed to be a safe place to be She went to the water cooler cum coffee machine, made some instant coffee, and went back to her desk To women, of course it did But men, she thought, were rather easily pleased and found all sorts of bosoms attractive.But it was impossible for her, as a woman, entirely to ignore the fact and it was a fact, a hard fact, even a journalistic face that she and Meredith Houseman had made love.Even in this crazy life there are moments Would you like some brandy with your coffee She had already learned that happiness was a fleeting thing, a matter of luck, like the goldfish one buys in dime stores ninety nine die, and the hundredth gets fat, thrives, and lives for years You ll find it has a fresh, pure taste It s the taste of contemplation He was holding the tray when Jim Twan, his Chinese houseboy, entered He had the telephone on a tray It was an evening of spun sugar and champagne foam, insubstantial, delicious but unsatisfying, beautiful but fleeting It was like a good moment with a kaleidoscope, when there is a fine pattern The pattern falls into something sels and is impossible not only to retrieve but even to recall Occasionally she was introduced to Senor So and so, or M Something, or Herr von Someplace The mind, he said, intruding on and descanting upon her thoughts, is the least commonly acknowledged erogenous zone

    Is this the best book you ll ever read from a literary standpoint No To say that the book would ever win any awards is a big overstatement With that said if you enjoy a book on the standpoint of being entertained I think many would The story is a good one and a familiar one And when the writer deals with Merry s search for happiness and especially the relationship with her father who was often absent in her life, the book works To me the book s biggest problem is with the writing Some par Is this the best book you ll ever read from a literary standpoint No To say that the book would ever win any awards is a big overstatement With that said if you enjoy a book on the standpoint of being entertained I think many would The story is a good one and a familiar one And when the writer deals with Merry s search for happiness and especially the relationship with her father who was often absent in her life, the book works To me the book s biggest problem is with the writing Some parts get mired down and just dull for awhile And the way some of the new characters were introduced in portions of the book all by themselves left you wondering for pages how in the world they fit in or what was going on Once they got blended in with the main characters things were all right again There were also parts that could have been left out and the story would have flowed better especially the explanation of how films were chosen for the Cannes film festival Those were definitely pages I could have done without.Overall I enjoyed the book and can see why it was a best seller It goes into my file as another guilty pleasure

    A really enjoyable representation of life without social boundaries once one becomes removed from the restraints of middle class concern.Not one for snobs or pseudo literati.

    This was a bestseller when it was first published I remember getting it out of the cupboard where my mother kept her books and reading it when she was out I was 14 and it was an adult book, I liked it.

    disappointing attempt to ape Harold Robbins, Sutton avoids Robbins flaws by telling his story from beginning to end, without changing between first an thirdperson passages, but most of the scenes are uinnispiring Bland mixture of Carpetbeggars and the follow up

    My sister got this book when she was an exchange student in Mexico when she was 16 in 1969 She gave it to me the following year when I was 14 I read it every year It was considered a sort of soft porn in those days It is definitely a fun read.
