My Thoughts:

I didn’t enjoy this one quite as much as the previous book. I think that is mostly because the novelty had worn itself out in book one.

Other than that, this was just as solid. Good character sketches, interesting descriptions of happy and sad times. This time around we also get some of the social interactions that Jim has; even if only to get completely plastered, fall down a hill with a drunk woman and then meet the girl he wants to impress.

I am glad I am reading these.
