Lucky Jim (by Kingsley Amis)

I doubt I'll get through very many more books by December, given my school schedule, but I actually did manage to finish this one! It's a tiny book that's taken me weeks, though, so, not a promising pace. This is another one from the Time 100 booklist, a satire of academia that is not half as successful as Pale Fire (yes, I am biased). However, it is amusing and was fun to read. I have a feeling I would have been laughing more if I'd read it all the way through rather than a paragraph at a time!

I'm not sure why it's on the Time list, though, quite. I mean, it's clever and all, but it didn't blow my mind or anything. In fact, I've run out of things to say about it already.
