it was ok
Read from February 29 to March 16, 2012

Each chapter of this book has an overarching joke which is hit home by the last line being the punchline. This IS a novel, so there's a story about a family living in a glass house that alternates between being told by the father and the son…as far as I can tell. A lot of the book is very twisted - and I mean that both in terms of the chronology and the jokes - they're filthy. There's a major punchline at the end of the book too, but I'll be honest - I'm not sure I got it. I'll be very selective in recommending this book to others, as in I can only think of two friends I'll pass it along to.
