This is a very personal first person POV story about Adam. Adam is a fairly normal guy albeit more self aware and honest about himself. He is a professed alcoholic with serious intimacy issues. He avoids thinking about or confronting everything, preferring to lose himself in a glass of beer. Adam is the type of guy who makes a good acquaintance, but a bad friend.

I found the humour to be dry and subtle. There were quite a few chuckle-worthy moments, and even more smile-worthy ones.

The ending left quite a bit open, and yet managed to end the story. There are several unanswered questions about Eve, and obviously some adventures still to come.

Overall, this was a good humour book that still focused on a story. The book was really about Adam, but there was still a complete plot to it, so I can't say it was really a character study book. It had a bit of everything, but was stirred well and read smoothly.
