Excellent Meta-Fiction


Bigger-than-life characters and high adventures abound in this rolicking good read! I thoroughly enjoyed the tongue-in-cheek repartee between the characters - predictable as it was at times. Perhaps the best part for me was the fictional 'abridgement notes' inserted by Goldman. At turns funny, insightful, sarcastic, and moving, they served to not only enhance the meta-story but also added a dimension all their own.
