I liked the idea of the book better than the book itself. I really, really liked Kirn's writing. But I wanted more discussion of the premise of the book than descriptions of the drugs he did and the girls he had sex with. Also the resolution of him starting his real education, taking his reading seriously, was pretty anemic. I really thought there was going to be more of that. It ended so abruptly on that note that I became confused and looked for a following page that wasn't there.
