This book was very, very slow. I liked some aspects of the book, but not many. If you're looking for a classic book to read that's good, i would not recommend it.

An well-realised character study of an insightful, troubled young man who is full of definite answers for the strange, inauthentic behaviours of the peers and adults in his life. The plot drives an exploration of his neuroses, and challenges their preconceptions about those around him - often confirming them. The narrator's tone and cynicism is rendered very faithfully to the experience of being young, and coupled with the struggles of disconnection, loss, and the chaos of life.
