I also appreciate that the book has its serious moments, but one thing I do have knock on a little is that serious matters are often always deflected with humor which something the author concedes he does frequently. I can appreciate that, but there were several moments where I thought the humor wasn't simply needed to make the point stand, and perhaps, the point may have stood more elegantly without the joke. Overall, I think Ellis offers some valuable insights through his own (often hilariously told) experiences that make this book a real treat despite maybe what is a little too much humor in the serious place.
There is a little retreading of material from his blog, but I think it helps unify the book in a lot of ways that makes the book as a whole make sense(which works well for people who haven't read the blog at all). This has been one of the highlights of my summer reading thus far, and it is definitely a book I could see myself picking up from time to time to revisit one of the funnier portions. I will definitely pick up a second one if it comes out.
If you haven't read his blog before, which I recommend you do, then expect to hear about the life of a twenty-something adjusting to living life on his own. He talks about his jobs, his apartments, his home life, his friends (and attempts at meeting them), the delicious foods he eats...all with a humorous wit that will make you laugh. It's hysterical and surprisingly easy to relate to; you'll see yourself a bit in him.
I'd recommend it to anyone, who is under 30, likes fast food and really can't stand camping.
