What the community says about A Confederacy of Dunces

  • Brenda Reynolds
    Written on April 22, 2018
    "There is nothing to suggest that A Confederacy of Dunces is the best southern literature, or if it is even southern literature, or if the author is a southern lit author. On the Amazon page, there isn't much information on the book other than ratings, reviews, and a short description detailing the fact that the book is a Pulitzer Prize winning book."

    "This is not a good solution because this book does not take place in America "

    "I came on here looking to find the best picaresque novels. I was told to check out A Confederacy of Dunces. This was an interesting and funny read, I really liked it. "

    "I don't know the first thing about Gilmore Girls. But, if this is one mentioned therein, it's a bit of a quirky story."

    "I was looking for a good time comedy book, and choose A Confederacy of Dunces. I was fairly disappointed. It was fairly slow and didn't make me laugh. There are better options for sure. "

    "Well, it's certainly not Noisy Outlaws, Unfriendly Blobs, and Some Other Things That Aren't as Scary, Maybe, Depending on How You Feel About Lost Lands, Stray Cellphones, Creatures From The Sky, Parents Who Disappear in Peru, A Man Named Lars Farf, And One Other Story [...], now that is a long title! While a decent book, I would not consider this to be a book with a long title. There are books with much longer titles out there."

    "This book failed to find a publisher at first, and the author's life ended tragically. But if you want to read a laugh-out-loud funny book about the foibles of the modern age, A Confederacy of Dunces is a great book to read. It's not a time-piece of the 1980s as other novels I can think of, but it definitely stands in a class of its own. "

    "David Bowie had a long list of books that he recommended recently and after looking through them one of the best that I picked out has to be A Confederacy of Dunces. This book is probably one of the funniest books I've read yet."

    "This is a decent vampire novel but far from the best. If you have nothing else to read check it out."

    "A Confederacy of Dunces is a classic piece of American fiction. The story is vibrant and frenzied, but very intriguing. It has a whole range of emotion from sadness to humor. It is an enjoyable and worthwhile read."

    "This book is well-written. Truly a shame the Toole didn't live to see it published. It is a must read in my opinion. The characters are well-developed and the story offers a lot of depth and consideration. I found it to be interesting and something that could make an excellent teaching tool."

    "I think this is a pretty good match for a lighthearted book. It's definitely pretty well known and even though the average rating wouldn't indicate it being the best, many consider it to be very good. I think that since there aren't many of it's kind it's a good solution."

    "Crazy, wild, funny -- everything I wanted out of the book. I've never been to New Orleans, but if this is what its like I have to go. I like to live on the wild side and this book took me there and then some. Just a weird and enthralling story."

    "When critics say Confederacy is not true-to-life because it's full of despicable characters; unlikely situations; and plot-holes, I have to wonder what kind of lives they have---because that's a near perfect description of mine"
