5.0 out of 5 stars One of a kind, 8 Feb. 2012
I can think of very few works of fiction that I've lost myself in as completely as I have this one. I'd recommend this book to anyone, but especially young men in their twenties. You'll find aspects, not necessarily those aspects of yourself you're most proud of in the protagonist, and it will help you understand the messy process of becoming an adult. Those reviews that complain about the unusual plot structure miss the point - This is the ultimate Bildungsroman (Coming of age journey). It's not the kind of book you dip in and out of, make sure you make time for it and wave goodbye to family and friends for a few days when you do start.
