This book was much hyped in various places, but I found it terrible. Frankly, after not quite one third of the way through it, I stopped reading. The prose isn't that good, the story is disjoint and unclear (as in, there's no point that I can see to it), and the main character isn't someone I can remotely relate to in any way. In fact, he's repulsive. So repulsive that reading about him is downright unpleasant.

In the end, I have no idea why this book was so popular. I'll go read other things that I actually enjoy as opposed to this.
