really liked it

I loved this book! It’s like "The Magnificent Seven" transformed into The Geriatric Eighteen. It is both comedic and tragic, and I believe it deserves its status as a classic of recent American literature.

This is one of those books that made me so excited by reading it. It’s an ineffable feeling that hits you when you know you have come upon something really good.

Rating: 4.5/5
