This book wasn't easy to read. It starts off fun especially if you're familiar with Manhattans downtown, but its not a fluid run-through read following an actual chain of events. It does but kind of jumps back and forth describing all the other crap that's transpiring and makes it quite difficult to follow. I wanted to get through in one rounded "sitting" but put it down several times and read other books in between. when I got through it I walked away with nothing more than what the film gave me, an excuse during the scenes DiCaprio wasn't in and raid the kitchen for snacks.
