it was ok

I thought this was uneven, but good in parts. It's a series of essays by the author of Candyfreak, which I loved, and about half way through this one, I figured out that I like him a lot when he is writing about things that are fairly specific to him, like being obsessed with candy, or with Kurt Vonnegut. On the other hand, when he discusses things that are more commonplace, like having grave concerns about the Bush administration, or sex, it gets a little monotonous for me, like the Charlie Brown adults.
