I happened to see online that this book has a bunch of negative reviews, but I’m not surprised by that. Tao Lin is somewhat controversial in that he’s a bit of a Marmite author – you either love him or you hate him. As for me, I’m a fan of what I’ve read, and I really enjoy his quirky writing style.
This one’s interesting because it’s almost like his equivalent of On the Road. It’s definitely heavily influenced by the author’s own life, and that’s fine by me.
