Ringer has a way with descriptions, and although some things are incredibly fanciful and a product of a hyped-up mind (the space shuttle comes to mind), others are essentially Minnie as He is.
The opening sequence is a great introduction to this "Jewish Hippie Boy from New Jersey". Obviously most of this story is fiction, but much of it has a basis in fact - it's up to you to figure out how much you want to believe.
This book is great as a beach read, as long as you can suspend your belief and groove to the music...
