it was amazing
bookshelves: reading-again

** spoiler alert ** I can't remember the name of the guy who introduced me to this book when I was about 16. It was one of the people who was a regular at Denny in Cranberry. He was a bigger guy with some red hair and facial hair. He smoked a lot of cigarets and knew all the cranberry kids. Any way I want to say his name was Karl. Not the tall long haired Karl who is rad though. ... .

Anyway, what I love about this book is the quality of the characters and each of their abilities to re tell their stories with a detached smart and biting elegance that translates to many witty rants punched full of charm and heavy with some down to earth meaning. This is a book of characters trying to live in LA and not go crazy re canting every day normal life by their standards. . ... . its a good thing the 3 main characters are nothing like the stereotypical.

This book loves to make up new words with their definitions. The most famous one from this book is the Mc Job.

This book will always be one of my favorite books
