• The writing style was too muh like A Million Little Pieces to really get into it. – Sarah
• I really enjoyed this book. Would have said “Loved It” but got sick of the long monologues. Paragraghs and sentences are not meant to be 2 pages long. – Carrie
• I have only read the 1st few chapters. What else is new? So far, it’s good. – Tami
• The relationship between the brothers was very touching. I loved the silly games that were described and how they were so rude to each other, yet there was so much love between them. I enjoyed the first half of the book much more than the second. – Marlo
• I didn’t really like the stream of consciousness narrative. I was kind of worn out by A Million Little Pieces and for this to be only a month after, I was burnt out. Nonetheless, I did read it and finish it almost as a challenge although I was annoyed most of the way through. – danica
• Didn’t quite finish but… got sick of the MTV interview part, otherwise enjoyed the story. I’ll finish it eventually. – Brandi
• The best part of the book was the title. I read the whole thing, but never got into it. Found it boring. – Steph

Conclusion: Not an overwhelming success. I think the comments pretty much cover how we all felt.
