A winner of the National Book Award, The Moviegoer established Walker Percy as an insightful and grimly humorous storyteller. It is the tale of Binx Bolling, a small-time stockbroker who lives quietly in suburban New Orleans, pursuing an interest in the movies, affairs with his secretaries, and living out his days. But soon he finds himself on a ?search? for something more important, some spiritual truth to anchor him. Binx's life floats casually along until one fateful Mardi Gras week, when a bizarre series of events leads him to his unlikely salvation. In his half-brother Lonnie, who is confined to a wheelchair and soon to die, and his stepcousin Kate, whose predicament is even more ominous, Binx begins to find the sort of ?certified reality? that had eluded him everywhere but at the movies.… (més)

Everything about this book was terrific. I remember reading the Sen. Bob Kerrey recommend this book in an interview and I found a copy a few weeks later. It just really hit a nerve and thought process with me as I was turning 30 years of age. ( )

A fabulous little book. The alienation of the main character is is very interesting, but in particular I felt that the solution to Kate's depression was what resonated with me the most. It was a feeling I had experienced in the past, while in a deep depression I just wished desperately that there was someone who would look out for me and tell me what to do. Tell me what I would do under normal circumstances and push me along to do it. It was an interesting thing to come across in this book. It is also one of the few books that has made me laugh out loud. ( )

I have wanted to read this book for a long time and I'm glad I finally got around to it. The language is wonderful, the descriptions bring you right into New Orleans, and I found the protagonist to be an interestingly flawed character. I ended up giving the book 4 stars instead of 5 not for any real flaw in the execution but because I need just a bit more plot for the books I enjoy the most. While I was intrigued by the journey and things do happen and change over the course of the book, that isn't the real point of the book. Well worth the reading time, a strong 4 star book. ( )

Ironic but not cynical, complex without being abstruse, hopeful without sentimentality.
