When I read that this book was an international cult phenomenon I thought it might be worth a few hours of my time. Admittingly, I am/was (I've moved on now) a bit dissapointed. Yes, the story is witty and humorous. Yes, the story tries to make a point about intelligent, unique indivduals living in a society that values luck and mediocrity. And yes, the story has interesting characters and is fairly quick-paced. But, the whole time I felt like the book was moving toward this epic conclusion and a really fabulous explanation of--something--but a ghost and a bizzare chicken ritual and he's--better? Did I miss something? So, what? He spends the rest of his time as a ghost? (shaking my head) I guess I just don't see the brilliance behind the story.
