Uninteresting people doing uninteresting things with no clear voice, creativity or point. People float in and out of the story with almost no characterization outside of their direct interations with the main character, with slight exceptions in the author's brother Jon and his "best friend" Wendy. Gross overuse of the word "fuck" and a handful of pandering to "west coast" audiences, though that could be considered a clever nod to the content.

Honestly, just a dull read with passable writing and storytelling skills, but it's mostly uninteresting dialogue and uninteresting non-plot.
