it was amazing
bookshelves: memoirs, humor

This is one of those books that I didn't think would blow my mind, but it surely did. In this story of one man's quest to read all of the encyclopedia, he tells both a hilarious but, at the same time, rather interesting story how what it is to be a "smart" person. The entire novel is written in encyclopedia entries, which are rather refreshing and surprisingly work well. Anyone who reads this book will not be disappointed.
