Quotes - The Hawkline Monster by Richard Brautigan

"Cameron was a counter.  He vomited nineteen times to San Francisco.  He liked to count everything that he did.  This had made Greer a little nervous when he first met up with Cameron years ago, but he'd gotten used to it by now.  He had to or it might have driven him crazy."
-Page 11, The Hawkline Monster

"The road was very bleak, wandering like the handwriting of a dying person over the hills."
-Page 52, The Hawkline Monster

I read this over three days, which really comprised of quick spurts.  It was funny for there to be a level of suspense in a Brautigan novel.  This was new for me.  I would say the ending fit what little I know and have come to expect from Brautigan.
