Overview

A philosophical journey.

Frozen Coffee Melting is a story of drugs, sex, and highway philosophers. In an age where a college education is a necessity, but the only things a working-class graduate is guaranteed are a crippling debt and a life of loan payments, Vince shares a genuine concern with many other intelligent young people of his generation: finding his place in the society he despises. While on a cross-country spree of petty theft, introspection, unusual encounters, and, of course, massive coffee consumption, a frustrated Vince questions the system. Finally, he draws his own unique conclusions about how to get along in the world.

A wonderful and funny tale that reminds me more of the 99% than of any other era. While it is filled with the journey of a young misdirected Vince, it's politcal narrative about the current status of our architecture, our entertainment, and our educational system seem more important than the adventure itself. Holden Caulfield is revived and set amongst a coming of age tale in a modern world. A must read for today's youth!

Frozen Coffee Melting is the present day On The Road but instead of whisky, its coffee. Actually, it goes beyond that; it is an adventure both physically and mentally. As Vince travels cross country making his way to New York with his brother, he drinks coffee, does drugs, and then drinks some more coffee. Heavy on philosophy, Vince explores socialism, capitolism, suburbs, cars, sex, and especially himself. This is an intelligently and humorously written book. I strongly recommend this to anyone.
