This is my second time reading this book. The first was probably about 13 years ago. I remembered living it so I bought it again. Now that I’m older it’s not as great as I remember, but it’s still a prettt good book.... and yes, the fact that I now know he lied did play a small factor in that. The first half of the book is sort of hard to get through. I get that he’s a mess, but he honestly just whines too much. I found myself skimming through sections cause I was tired of hearing him complain.
The last half of the book gets much better. He starts getting his stuff together and his relationships with Lilly and Leonard are gripping. I would recommend, but I do believe this book will not be for everyone
