I enjoyed this book, but I didn't "really like" it. It certainly was interesting -- the main character is an eccentric man who at first you like, then you kind of hate him at the same time and by the end of the book you realize you have witnessed his complete unraveling and that he was pretty nuts all along. I like the way the author did that in the development. That aside- the dialogue and text were full of intelligent and often irreverent commentary on society, politics and "America" today. It was okay, just not entirely my tea bag.
