    1. Well, it is a good introduction, I gather, to some of David Lodge's writing…and as I am always interested in taking a look at books about academic life, it was worth the quick read (the book is quite slim).I did find some of it funny; but overall, it made me think of the sad state of affairs in the Literature departments around the world. I'm a little more intrigued by the book Changing Places primarily as a comparison between British versus American universities (with some ribbing, of course) [...]


    2. Lodge selected these six exerpts from his novels himself. He highlights sections specifically about academic life, especially how English and American enterprises differ. Discussing deconstruction before an unappreciative audience, or explaining metaphor and metonymy to a captain of industry - Lodge is as insightful as he is entertaining. Now to find the time to read the novels in full!Lodge se selfgekose uittreksels uit sy sogenaamde kampusromans belig akademiese denke en aktiwiteite. Dit is ni [...]


    3. Excerpts from various David Lodge's books. Some quite funny, others less so.I don't think I should have read it at this particular point in time - I am just so over academia that I can't even find this kind of stuff funny. It's just irritating. Might have liked it a bit more had I read it while in a different mood. But then again, it's quite explicit in some ways, which I don't appreciate anyway.



    4. Very entertaining - would reread at some point in the future, because it was pretty good and not too long at all. Light subject matter.



    5. Good reading. Reading it while a student, I could relate to the academic life described in the book. But no special impression registered in my memory about it.
