It's sometimes difficult to tell if the author is exaggerating for literary effect since there's often a cynical yet tongue-in-cheek tone to the narrative which makes it hard to be sure how seriously to take what he says. There is however much of interest here and there are moments where I have no doubt about the honesty of his narration. Worth reading, as long as you consider that author may be presenting a skewed view.

Enlightening read. It plods along a bit and I found it hard to keep track, or care about, most of the characters. My husband thought it was pretty depressing but still worth it.
