The story from the very beginning reminded me a lot of Saul Bellow's "Seize The Day". But Pike is a lot smarter than Tommy Wilhelm even on his best day. In the end that may be Pike's downfall.

This is a really fantastic book and I would recommend it to anyone. But I honestly feel that this book would be especially important to those people who have trouble growing up and letting go of that party all the time mentality.
