The book was an okay read. There is not much story here, and the telling isn't compelling. It does have some great moments. Overall it needs an editor with the courage to tell the author to toss out the boring parts and the incoherent mush in between the funny parts and rewrite until there is a story.
Lerner does sling around a lot of vocabulary words--thank goodness for the Kindle's interactive dictionary!--but it mostly seems in keeping with the character. If you've read any David Foster Wallace, you can't get annoyed at the vocabulary used here. It pales in comparison.
The writing was excellent. Nice to find something different out there that is still readable.
