's review

really liked it

I can seen why some reviewers had a problem with this book. It's talky, and there doesn't seem to be much going on.

But that's also kind of what I loved about it. It was just what the doctor ordered for the start of the summer: a funny book about a bunch of characters who seem like they'd be good fun to hang out with, which is basically what I did for the month I took reading it.

I'm a huge fan of Martin Amis--as in, 'favorite living author' huge--and that probably biases my review of this book a bit. His style strikes all the right chords with me. Reading it was like drinking a really great cocktail, and not getting a hangover.
