Unexpectedly ended up being a delicious read

The ending was great- unexpected and lovely. I really like how relatable Mr. Less is and how the author really nailed his voice and tone. I read this book in a matter of days. Nothing jumps out as THE reason why I enjoyed it so much, it's just packaged so nicely that it flows out of the page and kept me reaching for it until it was done (and I was sad to not have the second book ordered already). Great read for a vacation!

One of the best novels I've read in a while

I really, really, really enjoyed reading 'Less'. I'm usually not the fastest reader and I tend to abandon many novels half-way through, but this one took me less than a week to finish. Beautifully written, witty and full of wisdom!

Not my favorite but decent

The story itself was good enough to keep reading till the end. The writing style though, not my favorite. It became a bot confusing jumping between different POV and timelines

Extraordinarily boring.

I slogged through the whole thing for a bad pun. Would not recommend.

I was entertained by Less

I was entertained by Less. The writing style was witty and Arthur Less was fun to hang out with. Loved the cast of characters and the midlife pondering. Made me laugh and think. Good time!
