Review: G.

User Review  - iarXiv - Goodreads

Littered with interesting ideas and profound statements, but way too dense for a novel. It is essentially a winding, complex, philosophical essay with a loose theme surrounding a young man called G. There are gems buried within, but you've got to work hard to get at them. Read full review

Review: G.

User Review  - Melanie Campbell - Goodreads

This was the first John Berger book I read. I picked it up in high school randomly while working at Borders. I've been hooked ever since. It would be interesting to go back and reread this particular book, since I've been slowly making my way through his other books for the last 15 years. Read full review
