I really had to look for this book, since I don't buy physical books anymore and it hasn't got an audio book. It's a weird book to read because there are parts of it that are horrible, but they're the kind of horrible that is so ridiculous that you can't help but find it funny. Our anti-hero/villain?/resident freak has had an absolutely horrible life, and is a complete weirdo as a result, and deserves every bad thing that happens to him (and that was a DELICIOUS ending, btw). Having said that, you almost want him to go on for another 100 pages, because everything that ever happened to him is humanity's stupid fault. One of the bleakest and certainly goriest comedies I've ever read. Enjoy!
