Read in August, 2009

So, I'm really kind of at a loss with this book. I wanted so badly to love it because I do really like Meno, and not just because he almost always throws some references to Chicago in his writing. "The Boy Detective Fails" is one of my favorite books and so I expected a lot from "The Great Perhaps".
But really? Really? This is the best you could come up with Joe?
I only finished this book because I kept hoping so very much that this was going to get better. The next thing I knew I was on the last page and nothing happened. It was mostly all individual character development with a few peaks of interests. Then, nothing.
Am I missing something? Is this one of those books that has an underlying message that is quiet? That the reader has to be clever enough to pick it up? Am I daft? Am I getting old?
Help me out here.
