The Book that Never Ends...
Reviewed in the United States on April 11, 2014
...but when it finally does you're not quite satisfied. The character's voice carries this story. The main character is amusing and easy to relate to. His life is tragic, hilarious, and deep at the same times, and if you like a book about guys in a band, this is a great read. The snark of the main character and the situations he finds himself in are enough to keep you turning pages, but after a while you start wondering what the story is building towards because it seems to go off in millions of tangents that spawn more tangents. At one point I asked, when is this book going to end? Every time I thought it was going somewhere, it didn't. At one point it almost lost my interest. But when the end finally did come, it wasn't a real conclusion. It felt like the story had finally made a point and needed to move on from there, but by that point, I did not want to read another 100 pages. So, I finished the book with mixed feelings. While it was very funny, touching, and just darn fun in places, overall, I don't know that I'd tell a friend to read it. But still, if you're bored or just looking for something to make you laugh, pick it up. You will find more than one thing to giggle about, and many more things that will make you think. Enjoy.
