I don't know why I like this book. It has all the trappings of being horrifically dull and seemed overly long. But, it has a certain Mark Twain quality about it. If you only know Mark Twain by the movies and cartoons made out of his books, then you won't get it. Avid Twain readers will. It's sort of like a Robert Altman film, more about characters than story arc. That's about all the analogies I can come up with. I often laughed out loud, which is a great annoyance. People ask you: "What's so funny?" There usually isn't a short answer. The best response is: "You have to read this book!"

Wish I could get my money back. Downloaded it to my Nook and couldn't believe how ridiculous this book is I'm three quarters through it and I hate it. I just feel I have to finish it. I can't believe I bought it without more research now.
