Well, written. Funny at times. Reflective points. Poignant. Just a good fun read. I'm hooked on the whole alphabet!
My God! How depressing! This book is based on the whims of an ego maniac an a mother, sister, friends, and strangers who are all enablers. They allows this young man to wallow and wallow and wallow in emotion and laziness to the almost destruction of everyone. What a moron! I wanted to slap this guy and say "Get a grip!" It's all about attitude. How can anybody be so emotional and such a dreamer and be surprised when they accomplish so little? What a depressing waste of time! Read Canyfreak instead. At least you'll feel good about yourself!
This was a very well written book. It gives great insight to how ridiculous people will act when very afraid of their boss. Great insight to the "glamour" of working for a magazine with all the frills. Anyone who has a child that wants to run away to NYC to find their fortune needs to read this to discover the true nature of NYC living and working. One major negative. The author is as guilty of devlish behavior towards anything or anyone that didn't originate in New York City. Consistently obtuse, prevaricating and insulting descriptions of southerners in the way they speak, dress, and act. As a southerner, I'm sick of it. We don't tolerate Miranda Preistly's in the south. We put them in their place and everyone goes about living happily ever after without much pretention. Now having said that, the author shows grandly in the novel that appearances are everything to the small minded, insecure, and ignorant. God must love stupid people. He made so many of them, and a lot of them read and worship rags like "Runway Magazine", the fictional setting of the year of the main character's life. Overall, enjoyable.
