The Free Fall of Webster Cummings: 10/30/08
An odd ball group of characters go through a variety of life changing misadventures only to converge on a strange little town in Oregon. The title character's adventure starts when he's sucked out of an airplane and survives without a scratch.
The Free Fall of Webster Cummings is made up of individually well written vignettes but together they don't add up to a coherent or compelling narrative .
I reserve the 50 page rule for extreme situations. This novel tricked me by suddenly but briefly getting interesting on page 54. I stuck with it until page 101 as the interesting bit slowly but steadily degraded back to mind numbingly dull.
