Everyman [Philip Roth]

A book group selection, and my least favorite thus far.

I listened to the audiobook and found this book to be much the same experience as being trapped on an international flight seated next to an exceedingly boring narcissist bent on confession.

Since I couldn't hide in the plane toilet or look for another seat, I half-listened to the droning catalog of maladies while sewing a giant teepee for my godson.

Everyman is definitely not a good book for the infirm or the depressed.
