I loved this book in college. It was well written and the main characters (well, the men anyway) were so anarchistic. Drinking, brawling, womanizing...at the time it seemed so compelling. Now, 40 years later, I gave it another try. It did not age well. For one thing, the main character is abusive and exploits the women in his life and you can't help but wonder what they ever saw in him. I could go on, but times change and misogyny just isn't amusing anymore.

I picked this novel since it is on the list of the top novels. I see the wit and I can see why at the time it was banned in some places. It was interesting performance but it become slow with his endless scheming. I was amused in some places and not in others. It is worth a read to see the character in a certain time and place. However, I will not re-read.
