A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole
A Confederacy of Dunces

leelerbaby, June 11, 2007

This book with it crazy case of characters is a surprising gem. The characters remind you of relatives or friend you might have, but would never publicly acknowledge. The book starts out slow but it's worth the time it takes to read. The ending comes together nicely and you realize why he took the time to make you familiar with all the characters. A perfect example of how every event whether good of bad fit together in the scheme of things. It a shame the author ended his life so soon. I would have liked to read more of Ignatius Reilly's life.
