This book is so sad. I don't know if I liked it better the second time around, but it was a fast read and still enjoyable. It left me loving Phineas and sorry for Gene the same as it did the first time. The guilt that Gene was left to shoulder throughout his life is at times depressing, but it does send the message that in our youth we often do things rashly and impulsively and no matter how big or small the consequences turn out to be, we all have to move on and make peace with ourselves and with those we affected.
