[Novel] Nemesis (Philip Roth)



A story about polio epidemic laying waste to Jewish Community in 1944, and the emotional effects it has on everyone it touches.

Positive: Negative:
Flowing, easy-to-digest prose Not exactly the most gripping of plots
A well-established mid-20th century setting Doesn’t stand out much from the rest of literary fiction
Profound characters
