    One thought on “The Free and Easy”

    1. What a strange book! I thought many parts were clumsy, but I'm still thinking about it long after finishing it, so it's intriguing, to say the least. I still don't know quite what to make of it, but to be honest, that's my kind of book.

    2. Picked this up in a book exchange at my hostel in Salzburg. It wasn't great, but it wasn't terrible either.
