Last Resort

I wish I had read the Amazon reviews before I picked this one up. Only 3.5 stars. I have learned that Amazon is pretty solid on this front and I don’t usually read books lower than 4. “Caleb Horowitz is twenty-seven, and his wildest dreams are about to come true. His manuscript has caught the attention of the agent, who offers him money, acclaim, and a taste of the literary life. He can’t wait for his book to be shopped to every editor in New York, except one: Avi Deitsch, an old college rival and the novel’s “inspiration.” When Avi gets his hands on it, he sees nothing but theft—and opportunity. Caleb is forced to make a Faustian bargain, one that tests his theories of success, ambition, and the limits of art.” (Amazon) I wanted to like this story, but it was too much like The Plot, which I really enjoyed, and often quite dull. The characters were too unlikeable in general and I only finished to find out the ending.
