Remember these?!! They were so cool!
predictable plot. boring. novels like these are a dime a dozen when you're a kid. This one was just well marketed and synergized. fuck harry potter.
Very well-written and thorough; it's amazing how little has changed in the discourse of urban structure in nearly fifty years. Jacobs' argument is extremely thorough. Her ideas seem quaint and idealistic on the surface, but she backs up her theories with detailed logic. While she might not have the hard statistics to illustrate every point, she uses a more comprehensive argument to show the way that planners of the time (mid-20th century) misinterpret the hard data anyway. The final few chapters are the weakest as they become more rhetorical and abstract attempting to explain the framework with which city problems should analyzed. The main theses of the book are tightly argued while presented in a conversational, albeit sometimes too angry, tone.
