did not like it
Read from August 17 to 24, 2010

The book started off quite good. I felt attached to the main character, thought it took an interesting point of view on a lifestyle probably quite common in America, and was curious what would happen to the main character.

By the end, the book was kind of harsh, angry, and I felt like I was reading a completely different story than the one I started with. Plus, Ryan Bingham (the main character) seems a bit like a monster by the end.

Also, it was DRASTICALLY different the book. One of the main characters in the moving was completely missing in the book, and I felt like the entire point of the two stories was different.

Anyway, wordy, I know, but I don't really recommend this book. Was disappointed.
