Let's suppose for a minute that I hated this story (I didn't)... what would my rating be then? Still five stars. This book contained some of the most fantastic prose I've ever read before. And for that reason, this book deserves, in my opinion, those five stars.

But, alas, I didn't hate this story. I loved it. The collapsed American dream, a commentary on wealth, a violent love triangle, and a single voice of reason - the narrator - who ends this book with profound observations.
