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.
