It's almost impossible to figure out where the truth and bullshit are in this book, but in the end I'm not sure it really matters as this is stll a wild and entertaining book. Read just has this amazing sense of dark humor that makes you keep reading. Read may be a violent sociopath, but he's a really great writer and a fantastic storyteller. In the end it might be best to listen to Read himself "never let the truth get in the way of a good yarn".
Again another book full of question, bad grammer and spelling mistakes. I find him to be exciting but at the same time a poor writer. In this book he tells us the same stories and new ones but he is hard to follow and understand at times. I hope his next books are better!!!

Much of the same in this book as his other offerings. Bit more pizzazz in this one.
