I liked this book much better than the first. Still a little predictable, but it also had more parts that made me laugh out loud.

This book had more depth than the first--it delved more into themes like family and pride.

Favorite quotes:
"Families are messy. Sometimes the best we can do is to remind each other we're related, for better or for worse...and try to keep the maiming and killing to a minimum." (258)

"I mean, the West represents a lot of the best things mankind ever did--that's why the fire is still burning...But sometimes you just see the bad stuff, you know? And you start thinking: 'If I could tear this all down, I would do it better.' Don't you ever feel that way? Like you could do a better job if you ran the world?" (200)
