This book was misleading in its purpose from the cover. The main character seems like your average Joe suffering depression. He takes this wad of cash and spends it on his schizoprehnic plans. It is unnerving to think that persons with enough cash could spend it this way. It is interesting to watch his mind unravel, but I too skimmed over much of the final chapters. I would consider trying another of his stories.

An Engaging Quick Read
Pick up this book with no expectations and you will be pleased. The premise is highly intriguing- what would YOU do with all of that money? But McCarthy¿s novel falls short of satisfying. It has a great build-up to the first re- enactment, but then seems to fold back on itself. With such thick layering on the characters, it is too bad the story does not keep going and give the reader some closure.
