Sometimes A Great Notion

[amazon 0140045295 inline] , Ken Kesey

The first pages of this book made me want to put it down and flee. POV changes in the middle of paragraphs - I swear one was in the middle of a sentence, but I could exaggerate. I was thinking Ken, Ken, what are you doing? I don't know who's talking and I don't like anybody and nobody's having a good time. At All.

And then he told me the story about Hank and the bobcat kittens. And he won my heart. And the language - I haven't read anything so delicious since - well, I don't remember since. Maybe Orlando. A much different collection of words.
