Amazing book-extremely visual if you know the city,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Mysteries of Pittsburgh (Paperback)
Having gone to Carnegie Mellon University, (in Pittsburgh) this book hit home. The characters out of context may seem unreal, yet if you have ever lived in the city, you know they are commonplace, and part of what makes Pittsburgh so amazing. I thought that is was a modern work with similarities in the intent of Catcher in the Rye. It portrays human relationships so well, and with complete unashamed honesty. I would strongly recommend this book if you like the works Douglas Coupland, novels about coming of age, or if you like Catcher in the Rye.
