it was amazing

I love everything about this book. Jonathan Lethem's distinct writing and insightful analogies make reading this book a feast for your literary imagination yet all the while the story stays grounded and real. As you follow Lionel Essrog's struggle to bridle his tourettes syndrome in the midst of his amateur detective work, you will start to feel as though you have contracted his tourettes. When you manage to make it through several pages without an outburst you feel the pressure of his urge in your chest. A unique coming of age tale, Motherless Brooklyn leaves you with a heartfelt appreciation for its protagonist and leaves me wanting more Lethem.
