I wasn't going to bother with a review of this book, but I truly must chuckle to what extent the "Belmont" types reviewing this work come across as caricatures of worst parts of Murray's portrayal. Obviously cut off from and utterly clueless about life as lived in a "Fishtown" they parrot the strange orthodoxy that seems most impressed when reality is ignored. Y'know, you gotta be nice to shiftless drug dealers, because being nice is what its all about.

I thought Murray hit a double here, but I'm going to have to wave him onto third thanks to all the duckspeak quacked out in some of these absolutely hilarious reviews. Keep up the good work, guys.

GR did not like my link. :( Doubtless one of you Belmonties will show me the error of my ways... /wiki/List_of_Newspeak_words#Duckspeak
