A Visit From the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan

A_Visit_From_the_Goon_SquadThis title was chosen for our staff book discussion, and I was very happy as I remember wonderful reviews. It was also the winner of the Pulitzer Prize, which of course made me all the more anxious to read it. Well, what can I say? The writing style was pretty unique; each chapter was almost like a short story. And there were some interesting characters. The storyline was plausible, centering around the life of an aging former punk rocker and record executive. But put it all together…and I got nothing. I found it all very confusing. It will be interesting to see what my co-workers think!
