Read from December 05 to 20, 2011

Never in a million years did I expect to like this book. A story based on a man living homeless in a park? I thought how mundane, right? Boy,was I ever wrong!! Absolutely one of the best books I have ever read. He is not only hilarious in his story telling, but he describes things in a most creative way you would never imagine (or could for that matter). Craig is a deep thinker and that comes across in the metaphors he uses in his descriptions of people and events in the book. This book made me feel many emotions; laughter,sadness,terror but mostly I laughed. This book was truly hard to put down. He captivates your imagination and his story flows so well I found it hard to find a stopping point to bookmark. This is a story that has a "M. Night Shyamalan" story twist, in my opinion and I loved it! This book is like a really good movie that you want to watch over and over again and each time you see/read it you get something new out of it you missed the first time around! I was sad when I came to the end of the book, it is just that good! I look forward to his next book!
