    One of the best books ever written It made me laugh out loud, and not many books do that It also made me think and presents the idea that we all grow and change into hopefully better people Tragedy can spark introspection and change, even if we think the event that occurs is horri...

    I love David Lodge, but this book about sitcom writer Tubby Pass didn t blow me away as much as his others.Tubby is a very self obsessed character suffering from depression and I found his first person narrative a drudge to read through Lodge doses up the final third of the book with his usual Catholic musings and a pilgrimage but I had lost interest by then.This book has taken me a few months to get through when normally I will devour a Lodg...

    After reading a couple of chapters, I thought this book was going to be a somewhat playful romp and although our protagonist Tubby amused me, I was, frankly, a little bored Being on a 13 hour plane ride as I was, I very much needed to get utterly lost in a novel, so I put down this book and picked up another novel only to return to Therapy weeks later I m glad I didn t abandon Tubby forever because, despite my initial impressions...

    David Lodge is the author of a collection of essays, titled The Art of Fiction, that is one of my favorite guides to writing Here, in Therapy, he turns to fiction, describing the mid life crisis of Laurence Pass, a British sitcom writer This choice of a writer as first person narrator means that Lodge is able to load the book with sharply observed details of life in early 1990s England, and of Pass s growing fascination with Keirkegaard especially that philosopher s unhappy relationsh David Lodge is the author of a collection of essays, titled The Art of Fiction, that is one of my favorite guides to writing Here, in Therapy, he turns ...

    I really didn t expect to like this book, and didn t for most of it I find Kierkegaard about as uninteresting a philosopher as it is possible to be and the idea of reading a novel about a man obsessed with him particularly a man as seemingly unaware of himself as this guy seemed was a complete pain Then, about half way through Lodge has a series of bits of writin...

    From an author I adore, it s a neat and nice book, but not of Lodgean heights The best bit in it is the way he handles his hero s sudden obsession with Kirkegaard And makes me nostalgic of Copenhagen
