** spoiler alert ** This book is about five morons who decide to grow pot in the middle of nowhere to make money. Everything they can do wrong, they do, including burning down the sad little shack they live in.
The story would've been much better if the main characters had stopped lucking out and started getting what they deserved. The beauty of tragedy is when the hero is finally brought down. Because the hammer never fell, it seemed like I was being strung along. And the level of writing was not up to TC Boyle's usual level - probably because this is one of his earlier books?
