I wasn't sure if I should give this book one or two stars, but since I have a tendency to score books higher, I should continue this trend.
I absolutely hated the main character in this book. He is a puke and a punk. While the stream of consciousness style of writing is fine, it is the character that made this book unsavory. Let me state that I had to read this for our book group, otherwise I never would have gotten past the first 30 pages. The book did not improve, nor did Punkzilla. He couldn't make a right choice if his life depended upon it. I grew tired of his criminal attitude, the drugs, his hand jobs, blow jobs, and misogynistic attitude. He has not redeeming qualities. Hard to believe that this is an award winning book. The committee must have gone for shock value and not literary content.
