    Well I really loved this book up until the last 10 pages It was a very abrupt ending for a book with so many storylines and durectjons So maybe if you don t want to be disappointed just don t read the last chaoter.

    When I first started reading this, I thought I would like it It started out kind of funny, with the explosion and the weight loss clinic, but as it went on, it just kind of got nonsensical I m still trying to figure out what the point was Orphans turned into art forgers, a clan of hill people in civil war garb fighting with the forgers over what art is Not to mention the overdone novel jokes I have no idea what I read, honestly.

    This book is David Sedaris meets Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas Had it s funny moments and a few I actually laughed out loud at but mostly just because it is so ridiculous Some parts were hard to follow, and things got crazy for a while there There were strings of events, snippets of a poem story he s writing, and current actions strung together in a drunken pile Good and weird, but a quick, different read.


  9. Ali Lafferty Ali Lafferty says:

    Book was sort of slow moving, but there were some great bits of humorous prose that made up for it It was really dry, but some of the stuff that happens leaves you wondering where in the hell they ARE in America, and it was nicely quirky.And I loved the plot twists near the end Once it started coming together, it got better.

    Halfway through, just can t force myself to finish this book Guy owns a hotel, is trying to write, interspersed with stories about him growing up and assorted weird characters It s like taking a long, meandering walk with early onset dementia Quirkiness is admirable, but not in economy size doses.
