I loved this book as a teenager. It's a very easy read and manages a sort of nostalgic appeal, but it also has a lot of fluff. Since it isn't meant to be taken too seriously, it would make a great beach read or in-flight quickie. I laughed out loud a handful of times and often found myself smiling; and the last fifty pages or so really picked up. They are easily the best of the book, though the short piece on his father is also quite touching. His descriptions of childhood and jail are also funny, insightful, with peeks at his more serious side. But mostly this book is meant to be a good time, a bit of fun, and it is. I think this would be a great book for teens (especially 15 and over; there are some off-color jokes, crude humor, and sexual references) or anyone looking for some easy, light-heartedness.
