I enjoyed the Texas teen angst of this novel and at times, was laughing out loud. I came to understand and care about the characters very quickly which was a bit of a trick considering most of them are as fallable and floundering as the rest of mankind. Real, hard, desperate people dealing with a terrible catalyst yet they all remained true to their nature. It may not be for everyone, but for those willing to crawl into this utterly warped and damaged 15 year old boy brain, I think you will be satisfied with the results.

And no... if you want Columbine, read Columbine.

This satirical look at crime and punishment, the media and the American culture is interesting, but I found it hard to read.

I read it cover to cover in one evening, well truth be told, I didn't finish it until SIX a.m.!!!! It is a lot different that what I normally read. What drew me to it originally was the fact that it has won several awards. One quote from the back "Vernon God Little is a provocatively satirical, riotously funny look at violence, materialism, and the American media."
