Review by: JaneofArch on Aug. 12, 2017 :
If you've a fondness for eccentrics I can recommend perusing this author's books. As with the associated works, Big Fish is a frustrating read, full of bizarre and quasi-bizarre characters, and with a weak-kneed hero. In fact, "observer" could well be substituted for "hero" as a description of the main character who stumbles through life and adventure with weak motivation and a lack of decisiveness that I found quite frustrating.

No real ending to the tale, and it would profit from the excision of fifty or more pages of pointless philosophizing. Still, I read to the end and consider the book well worth its price. I suspect that the author could be quite successful—even to the extent of getting readers to pay actual money for his books—if he were a tad more conventional. I give it a generous four stars.
