I haven't been a fan of Jess Walter's sarcastic, too-clever writing style, but after reading reviews I gave this a try. Definitely his best work yet! Fascinating characters and storyline, and Walters uses the alternating past-present storyline to good effect.
The narrator does a fine job with one really irritating exception: toward the end of the book he mispronounces almost EVERY place name in the author's own home town (and mine). Really?!! Couldn't someone have consulted the author or checked this, seeing as its where the whole story comes together?
