Never read any Tom Wolfe before . . . mostly through Charlotte Simmons . . . he's good . . . maybe a bit overwritten . . . (where's the editor? 650 pages?) . . . good grasp of characters, some great humor . . . effective use of setting . . . very engaging plot . . . great eye for detail . . . but what's with the paragraphs of short sentence fragments encased in ellipses? . . . Seriously? . . . It's annoying . . . adds nothing . . . I like real sentences . . . I want more of them
