"Before you know it as the years go by, you're just like other people you have seen, with all those peculiar human ailments. Just another vehicle for temper and vanity and rashness and all the rest. Who wants it? Who needs it? These things occupy the place where a man's soul should be." -- Henderson the Rain King

Book #12 was An American Dream by the late great Norman Mailer.

Is boring start, great middle, disappointing ending a good enough review? Cause that pretty much sums this one up for me. But that middle really was pretty frickin' sweet.
