Hotel Honolulu

Hotel Honolulu - Paul Theroux The latest novel by one of my favorite writers. Theroux is almost better known for his travel writing than his novels (Mosquito Coast, Saint Jack, My Secret History to name a few), but I'm a fan of all of his work. There is something about his main characters (usually thinly veiled versions of the author himself) that I identify with. I truly enjoyed Hotel Honolulu. My only complaint is that it reads like many short stories, so I found myself reading it in short installments, rather than getting caught up in the arc of the novel. Still very entertaining and poignant, filled with richly detailed characters.
