Thanks to Daniel Amory and his book Minor Snobs, I finally understand all of the exasperated k-12 teachers that ranted about passive voice in class.

It was les a realization of an unrealized dream from an old womb filled with grief, and as long as he ad his phone, he was never too far from it -- as real or unrealas it was. " [ from page 31, emphasis mine ] So, to sum up writing style, more thesaurus, less passive voice.

Well, Amory has a lazy habit of having his narrator " remember " qualities about other characters as they come up to fill in potential plot-holes, rather than finding a less obtrusive way to create character exposition.Onto plot, we are invited into the life of Tom Sanders, who is, according to the back cover, " a handsome, conscientious, and astute young law school graduate. " I ill ive you that he is a law school graduate.

There is just studying, meeting up for food, offee, drinks, and final scene in which SOMETHING ACTUALLY HAPPENS ( can I et a Gadzooks?) .So maybe I 'm a bit of a* snob* myself, but I found almost no redeeming quality in this novel.
