Some people just know how to construct perfect sentences. The premise of the book is about two guys who are trying to travel around the world in a week to give away money. It, however, is not the plot that makes this book so good, but the hilarious writing style.

Well written and enjoyable it you're already a Dave Eggers fan. If you've never read him before I'd start with his first book, A Heart Breaking Work...This book probably could have been edited down a little. That said, it was a pretty quick read and engrossing. My head swam with the characters and situations.
I will have to agree... I really liked A Heartbreaking Work... and sent it to someone else long ago...(should really get another copy of it here.. ). This one, I have started several times after buying it immediately in its unique hardcover version.. but have yet to finish it.
