I really liked this book, but I struggled with it's claim to be a novel. I felt that it read more easily as a collection of short stories with a running theme throughout. Perhaps it wasn't supposed to be read easily - maybe that was the intention and I have missed that point somewhat.

I liked the sarcastic and ironic attitude of the prose but felt as though I wasn't really cool enough to be too close to it.
