Thoughts: What interested me the most in The Corvette in Literature and Culture: Symbolic Dimensions of America's Sports Car was the cover picture, which I learned after reading the book was entitled "Concrete Heaven" by Dana Forrester. Unfortunately seeing one of the most famous landmarks from my old neighborhood was the most interesting part of the book for me. Passon's coverage of the Corvette in literature and other cultural mediums was interesting, and I did learn some and found a couple paragraphs highly interesting, but it was very dry reading. Each chapter was filled with jargon - scholastic not mechanic - and too many quotes. This just served to halt what was already slow reading.
