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.

Didn't grab me as much as 'A Heartbreaking Work...' (which I loved), but still a worthwhile read.

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.

I've tried to read this book several times now, but I just cannot get past the second chapter. I find Dave Eggers's writing style maddening.
