It won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and perhaps deservedly so. This is a huge novel which feels very Dickensian as it follows the life of its protagonist in New York from a tragic childhood to an adulthood linked disturbingly to crime, While I found the ending a little bit preachy and overlong, what made this book so enjoyable was the attention to detail in its main character and his relationship with a range of memorable characters in New York and Las Vegas. The incredible events at the beginning are unexpected and breathtaking.
