The story of a nameless man. Lonely, bored with life and his only friend a girl who he hates but loves. In the morning a Russian roulette game is played instead of breakfast.

When things go wrong it seems to "click" away to awake somewhere else or doing something that makes no sense.

Is it really a power that he can just "click" and make things better. An hallucinogenic ride in the mind of a man with suicidal tendencies a skinny girlfriend and a memory of what just happen really didn't or did it?

This stream of consciousness is my favorite novel of all time. The vivid imagery, picasso-esque take on perspective, and emotional punch Young packs into his writing set a bar I look to meet in everything I write. However, like Ginsberg's writing, it's not a piece meant for less open minds.

Stream of consciousness that sends you reeling through the confines of a mind of a man who you are never entirely certain of. What at first seems like the ramblings of a paranoid schizophrenic becomes more than just delusions of grandeur at work. By the end it starts to get a little heavy handed message wise, but you definitely fly through it in its entirety eager to figure out what on earth is going on. A great and interesting read, but some artistic choices, particularly moments at the end, se ...more

Very original plot and I love the way things are described by the nameless main character....I don't think any one in this book has a name. The points bough up are creative yet we all can understand and ponder about. My only problem is the beginning is very long than it kicks into high gear for the end. Kind of seems like the end was rushed. Still a good ending was just wishing the book could have longer. Final thoughts a good and different book I think many will enjoy......if they can find a co ...more

This is the second time I've picked up this book to read. I'm not sure if I don't have the attention span to read it, or if I'm just as neurotic as the character and can't focus. I really hate to abandon the book (I've read books I HATED on sheer principle of giving it a chance.) But I'm going to have to put this one down for a while and try again later. Too many other books calling me right now.

I'm just not a fan. I see what he was doing here and it's endearing but I'm just not excited about this read. :/ Every book is still worth reading though :). Good quote? "reincarnation is misleading-it's not about my next life, but the moment this moment leads into, my future self, my tomorrow self."

It's the literary equivalent to free jazz. While there is a plan all along, the reader is taken along for a ride into the mind of the nameless protagonist.

There are narrative threads along the way that help it all make sense in the end. A great, inspiring, fresh, and unique read.

It's always nice to read a locally written novel... a quick read and a disturbing view into nightmare/reality/I don't know what. Not for those who are stuck to capitalization or can't handle freely flowing meditations.

I think this is a book that seventeen year old me would've loved. Unfortunately, I read it as twenty four year old me and just couldn't stick with it.

The language is snappy and strong, but it just never managed to interest me beyond that.

Smart and gritty psychological plot that puts the reader in the mind of a paranoid schizophrenic. What's real and what's not? You decide.
