I've heard his name thrown about a lot, so I picked up The Road to Wellville. I'm still a little on the fence about it as I had trouble identifying with any of the characters, but I was more and more engrossed as I went. I read the first half over a few days and the second half in one evening. Definitely well written, but I think I'm going to let it sink in a bit before I read anything else by this guy. If I do decide to pick up another one, any recommendations?
For me, I think I enjoy a book less if I don't really like any of the characters, even if they are well drawn as was the case here.
He also has a tendency to throw out a lot of archaic vocabulary, but I took it to be a function of the early 20th century setting.
Thoughts?
