I was hooked by the humor and honesty of the voice. Thurston tells us about his first conversation with his girlfriend to be as spending a long time talking about "what has more caffeine, decaffeinated Coke or decaffeinated tea," which is exactly what you talk about on your first long night with your college girlfriend to be.
But read on, read on, and there is wisdom, heart and pathos waiting for the reader who delves. Why don't I give it five stars? I'm trying to save that ranking for the time I feel I've found, at last, the great American novel...meaning, I never give it. But this was pretty damn close.
