You Shall Know Our Velocity - Vintage Author:Dave Eggers In his first novel, Dave Eggers has written a moving and hilarious tale of two friends who fly around the world trying to give away a lot of money and free themselves from a profound loss. It reminds us once again what an important, necessary talent Dave Eggers is.
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.
