Books Read in 2009: "The Moviegoer" by Walker Percy



Google Books

I read this once before, years ago, and remember being underwhelmed because the title seemed to promise something about movies. Having been a film major and still entertaining fantasies about breaking into the industry, I took this quite literally. I read it, said "OK, I guess it's not," and moved on.

I re-read it because it was the selection for a book group I was thinking of joining. I didn't finish it in time for the meeting, but it was definitely well worthwhile. Although I am kicking myself now that I have finished it, because I would love a good discussion with someone about it.
