Reviews - What do customers think about The Education of Douglas Finney?

Education of Douglas Finney  Sep 27, 2007
This novel is about a group of young friends-- 3 American men and 4 English women-- who don't get along very well at all. The men are in the Air Force and are stationed in England; the time is early 1980's, but that's not significant except for a brief mention of the Falklands war.

There's no plot, and the characters are all fairly one-dimensional. The group argues and they snipe at each other. Most of the book is conversation, punctuated with Douglas Finney's ceaseless, annoying puns and jokes. He's supposed to be very attractive to women but it's not clear why.

I'm not sure how the titular reference to Finney's "education" applies-- he has experiences (a romance, some sex, a brief unpleasantness with the police) and the last few pages indicate he's grown up a little, mostly because he's able to converse briefly without constantly making wisecracks.

There are also many self-referential asides on the text throughout that reminded me of Lemony Snicket. If you're an adult and enjoyed the Snicket books, and you don't need plotting in your novels, this may be for you.
