Not worth the calories!,
This review is from: This Book Will Save Your Life (Paperback)
I saw the glowing review by Stephen King on the back, suggesting it was "like Catch-22 or The Catcher in the Rye..."
and I thought this could be good. Did this 'talking head' read this book? Is this Stephen King who works in the local supermarket, rather than the world famous author?
I'll save you the effort, it's nothing like those books. It was a long hard slog that never seems to go anywhere. There characters need considerably more fleshing out for you to be interested in whether they're on the next page and the situations may exist in a one-in-a-million situation [unlikely], but don't be fooled by the jacket, there's nothing sharp or wildly entertaining about this novel.
Save your time or at least choose something better written and more entertaining.
