dave egger's 'what is the what' is my pick. here's some more info:

i like eggers. been a fan ever since 'might' magazine a zillion years ago. started reading it already and so far pretty interesting.

so, get to it, nerds!

Michael | 8 comments yeah, it's a little on the long side, almost 500 pages. plus...small type!

anyway, i'm almost 100 pages into it. 's pretty good so far.

Steve Tenebrini (tenebrini) | 10 comments Long AND depressing. Largely a part of why it's taking me so long to read it. It's a good book though.


message 4: by Michael (new)

Michael | 8 comments 'bout half way through now. oof, this thing is hea-vy. sad, and yet eggers manages to inject some humor into it.

message 8: by Denny (new)

Denny | 26 comments I've been meaning to read this one.
I got kind of behind in January, so I'm working on it.

And for some reason I've been really skeptical about this book, and Eggers in general.
I don't really know why, other than he's all perfet or whatever.


message 9: by Michael (new)

Michael | 8 comments had no idea there was any "sudden acclaim" on this one. just thought it was a good read. liked the structure of it, too. it is pretty heavy, but it's funny. i thought it worked. i must be getting old because i was, like, touched or something. ha!
