The narrator did not match the author's writing style. The writing and voice of the 28-year-old author did not match the narrator's much older, reserved style of communication. I felt like my Dad was reading me the story. This book feels like a documentary so using the actual voice of the author would have helped convey the story. This book would have been better if the author read his own book.
Absolutely Augusten Burroughs. Often awkward, painful and then hilarious. I have been reading him for ten years and I love this one. Not as serious as Not as serious as
I had a difficult time with the author starring as the main character. I thought the Bret Easton Ellis irony, sarcasm, suffering and pain, which I love, were missing in "Lunar Park". None of the original characters from the previous books resurfaces in "Lunar Park" so this one did not feel like part of the nuerotic and narcissistic dynasty. I was not charmed by this one. Maybe I missed something.
