great book! I found the narrator's character voices a little irritating. But I was able to easily ignore it; getting sucked up in the story.

It's an amazing story that gave many questions, and answered only those it wished to. The story had a twist that, while I had many ideas for what might come, managed to suprise me. The narrative had a eunique perspective, depicting the character slightly differently from what most might. Instead of a more apathetic angsty character, the voice given him made him a much more depressed and sad character. Speaking og which, the characters where anything but one-dimensional. The main character wasn't just an edgy teen filled with apathy and lust. Nor was the view of the world depicted one of simple cool people and not. Adults were more than 'dumb conformers.'
