Under the Volcano (Malcolm Lowry)

 

Under the VolcanoIs this that stream of consciousness thing again? At least this book has a semblance of a plot and is set in an exotic country.

Positive: Negative:
Deep complex realistic characters Tedious, overly complicated prose
Some insight into the hardships of life
Constant digressions
Enlightening on Mexican culture
Extremely slow pace
Story itself is very simplistic
