Review: The Humbling

The Humbling
The Humbling by Philip Roth

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I don't entirely know what to think about this slim novel. The main character bored me a lot until he started his relationship with the much younger lesbian. The idea of trying on another kind of life to see if it could fit interests me. And the end was certainly dramatic. But the aging, failing actor was hard to maintain interest in. It's more like 2.5 stars, but since I did feel compelled to read it in one gulp, I'm going to be generous and round up.
