this is a cool book...kind of confusing because the footnotes sometimes take up most of the page and it's pretty funny....there's a flip drawing at the bottom of the page on the left hand pages...which makes it fun to flip the book

Gus VanSant has a very interesting mind to be able to come up with this story.

I put forth a great deal of effort to read and finish this book. I finally gave up after trying to deal with the way the book was written, including footnotes that went on for a page in some cases, and the different text and fonts, that for me was total chaos. For me trying to keep track of the footnotes, stopping and starting to read this clustered up mess of a book with all the footnotes, to read important information about the characters, this book just was too difficult to try and piece together to read in any order of sense to me. Definitely not a book you can just read from cover to cover, with good word flow, and without over 50 footnotes throughout the book. I have never read a book written like this before, and would not want to try another.

This too is my daughters book and no longer wants it so I'm posting it here. Have I read it? No.

What is it about - In the town of Sasquatch, Oregon Spunky Davis middle-aged maker of infomercials mours the death of his friend and favoraite infomercial presenter, teen idol Felix Arroyo. Then into his life come 2 young aspiring filmmakers whom Spunky finds strangely familiar - especially as Jack bears an uncanny resemblance to the late Felix. But Jack and Matt are not what they appear to be; messengers from a dimension beyond time known as "Pink", they invite Spunky to join them on their voyage of transcendence and recovery.
