This book is great. 50% Kerouac, 25% Palahinuk, and 25% complete original Schuck. I love the two main characters and the people they meet.

The audiobook is really fun too, and really adds to the story.

I spent some time traveling abroad in Central America like the main character, and I felt like I was there all over again. It's authentic an
