First Reviews

The Kindly Ones tends to elicit strong reactions–both on the positive and negative ends of the spectrum.

Two early online reviews are a case in point.  Here is a very positive review by Biff Bam Bop:  “The Kindly Ones is a magnificent modern novel that deserves immediate recognition and canonization; it redefines the war novel and takes language and the dissemination of ideas to a league on par with Joyce, Borges, Pynchon, Proust, and Tolstoy.”

Whereas The Complete Review wrote:  “The book is readable, though there seems little good reason to bother. It is beyond comprehension why it has gotten as much attention as it has.”

As more reviews come in we will note the divergent views on this book.
