I will be honest with you; the potential buyer of this, my first novel: it didn't turn out as stellar as I had hoped. The book is comprised of chapters that are more or less stand-alone ideas or stories of actual events and experiences, but that are also tied to or reference other chapters. Overall, this works, though I would say it is sometimes choppy, and a couple of smaller chapters actually don't bring anything to the narrative, and serve no purpose at all, and should have been left out. However, having said that, my friends tell me it is a great read, full of laughter and followed immediately by something that will make you get a box of tissues. If you enjoy books that are written as if the author is telling you a story face to face in his own voice; by self-deprecating and sarcastic writers, then this is definitely the book for you.
