Sometimes tragic, sometimes comic, sometimes tragically comic. Really enjoyed this book which, thankfully, was not about "finding yourself". In fact, it's the complete opposite and quite unconventional. (My type of read!) And I identified with the main character despite him being male and a bit of a dag. I guess I identified with the dag bit :) Great read. Highly recommend it.

I really loved this book. Maybe because I'm a fundamentally unspiritual dag who's happy to hide in her apartment, and enjoyed the trip from the view of her couch.

I felt great empathy for our catastrophic, humour-filled protagonist.

It's weird that goodreads lets you review your own books. I'm going to give it...five stars. Even though I hear the author is kind of a jerk.
