really liked it
Read in August, 2009

Long have I been meaning to give Russo a try and his latest novel hit my bookstore at exactly the right time. The story is richly told - funny and empathetic, with just enough "Are you serious?" moments to the narration to really make the reader think. I'm not entirely sure the narrator - Jack Griffin - is likable, per se, but he kept me company in just the way I needed these last two weeks. Also, reading about his failings reminded me exactly how much awesomeness there is in my life right now, reminded me to appreciate it and cultivate it and let the good stuff be the most important stuff, day after day. Never a bad thing to remember!
