A quick and easy read. Written in the first person, the narrator reveals himself to have an interesting outlook in his life. Other characters are revealed through his selfish lens to make a unique reading experience.
(Maybe 2.5 stars) I don't really know what to say about this book. I didn't not like it, but I don't think I liked it either. It was categorized as a Tragic Comedy. I didn't really find it funny, other than one part where Marv was casting people to play the movie roles of the people in his life. I didn't think that anything that happened to Marv was tragic either. I do believe that the only reason I even finished the book was to find out if the bear finally ate Marv. It's not spoiling the ending for those who want to read it, but I was pleasantly surprised with the last chapter.
Sorry, but what book was the editorial comments referring to? I expected this hilarious,witty book. Instead I got a ho-hum,"when is this gonna end" story. Sorry, did not live up to the hype.
