I enjoyed this book. The story is believable - especially if you are (or can remember being, like me) a frustrated twenty-something discovering that life isn't what all those TV shows told you it was. The dialogue is snappy and quite funny in parts. I especially loved the character of Trim! He was consistently warped and funny. I think Jeff Somers is my new hero. I've recommended this book to everyone I know.

I got a galley copy of this book through a friend. Mr. Somers has a sharp wit and an incisive understanding of his generation, and he wraps them inside a fun story filled with interesting characters and unexpected twists. In the final analysis, there's an unexpected depth to the story amidst the jokes. I'd recommend it to anyone who likes a good story.
