did not like it
bookshelves: bookclub, a-tree-died-for-nothing
Read from August 18 to 28, 2010

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. So much to say. Although the book did have some redeeming qualities,overall I think it was garbage.

The excessively foul language, blatant misogyny and racism and glorification of drug use overpowered whatever story the author was trying to tell in my opinion.

If I were an Aussie, I would be mortified to think that this book could be representing my country and culture.
