it was amazing

One of my favourite books. Hilarious and intricate. Lionel is a fellow who warms the cockles of my heart. Eli is wiling to stand alone. If I had the book with me now I would go through all the names. Suffice to say that this book's parodic fun with western culture and literature is funny and angry. I am moved by the understanding this book shares with cultures that have reason to be bitter, but whose bitterness transmutes into humour. This book is nice (precise) in its descriptions of university lectures, contemporary restaurants, consumer society, big corporations, and so much more; this book is also magical. In short, this is a major work.
