Format: Paperback
This very powerful book had themes reminiscent of many others. In a way it reminded me of The Catcher in the Rye, On the Road, and Narcissus and Goldmund, in that is was a man's search for his place in the world. In this book, however, the main character, Evangelos Arness, is looking for liberation and being true to himself. At the beginning of the book, he is a a financially successful ad man who has a 'respectable' and 'comfortable' life, but he realizes, somewhere between women and unconcious suicide attempts, that he is nothing that he set out to be. So, he sets out on a journey to burn down what he had become and rebuild what he wanted to be. His trip to liberation is dark, often humorous, and sometimes sad, taking him through his past, his family, and insanity. This is the kind of book, much like the ones I named above, that becomes a part of you.

The main character in this book is in the middle of a " middle-life crisis ", he struggles between what he has, and what he has dreamed of. The characters are so real and you identify yourself easely with the main character. I am reading this book now, ... I have read it before with the same passion and books like this one make you think and you can't stop reading it. Sometimes the whole night ! read it send your comments to gabs_goldberg@hotmail.com

My only dislike was the kindle edition had many mispelled words and grammatical errors. I found the book at a B&B I was staying at and did not have time to finish. Ordered it for my kindle and could not wait to get home to finish it.
