I wanted to like this book. I read an article once that likened its protagonist to the main characters from several books that I love, and when I met Dave Eggers briefly, he was a really nice guy. But God, this was just a tough one for me to get through. It had moments that really got me, but they were only a few paragraphs interspersed between blocks of texts that I found it difficult to even focus my eyes on. Maybe I'll have better luck with an Eggers non-fiction next time.
