The book was an okay read. There is not much story here, and the telling isn't compelling. It does have some great moments. Overall it needs an editor with the courage to tell the author to toss out the boring parts and the incoherent mush in between the funny parts and rewrite until there is a story.
Lerner does sling around a lot of vocabulary words--thank goodness for the Kindle's interactive dictionary!--but it mostly seems in keeping with the character. If you've read any David Foster Wallace, you can't get annoyed at the vocabulary used here. It pales in comparison.
The writing was excellent. Nice to find something different out there that is still readable.
Ben Lerner's newest novel does not resonate as Leaving The Antocha Station did. It's a nice novel, the theme of the future pulling one into it is very nicely pieced together. I am also a fan of pictures inside novels (when done correctly of course). But the novel's story did not draw me in. But let's face it Lerner is a man who writes for himself and that was the gold of LTAS. Too bad it didn't translate well into 10:04.
