The most amazing thing about this book are the endings to the stories, because they don't really end. The story being told ends, but something else is on the verge of happening. There are several standouts, but the book is great.

Hard to decide if Lionel is unreliable or not, but it's fun. Original, funny, and sad, sometimes we're a step ahead of Lionel, other times we're trying to figure out how he knows what he does.

Pretty fast read, even though I spent soem time on it, usually reading only a chapter at a time. It was initially a young adult book, I think. She certainly carried the voice of a sixteen/seventeen year old through out. Some of the scenes ring as tru ...more
