Plot Against America--American Style

This is the most recent in the string of books selected by the liberal intellectuals (well, at least they're trying to be) in my book club. I found this book full of run-on sentences. It may seem bizarre, but right after being hit in the face with the collectivism of the Jewish neighborhoods, the never-thinly-veiled 'this Repub can take away your rights too and just may because he's a repub just like my fictional character who was never actually elected but who might have wanted to do some really bad things' politics, the most annoying thing was the page-long paragraphs made up of only two or three sentences. I joked that in one sentence you're introduced to the character, given their description, their history, how they ended up in that location and then what happens when they're there.
