If you are looking to understand about the everyday life in Berlin since the fall of the Berlin wall, this is your book. Kaminer has this great way to describe the political incorrect with his innocent spectator view. Most of his stories, even the sad ones, leave me feeling upbeat. Many stories make me laugh out loud. Kaminer is a true comedian, he feels deep, he is supersmart, he teaches you how to cope with everything and anything by trying to find the hilarious, bizarre and funny in everything we encounter.

Kaminer is one of the great contemporary German authors. He is a Jewish Russian immigrant who came to Berlin in 1990, but he generally dislikes critics' attempts to pin him down and box him in. His observations of Berlin are fresh and witty, but don't romanticize things. I have read 9 of his books so far and am continually looking forward to the next one. I am quite happy that his work is being translated into English and have already given this book to my parents as a gift.

I had high expectations of this book, but was quite disappointed. While funny at times, the book ultimately tells a story of narcisisstic man, who is in love with his own intellectualism, wit, and being special. Whatever he writes that is funny is quite diminihed by that.

Easy to read, very funny book. Too bad there is no other editions on English.

This book is dry and boring. It's like a bunch of short essays that read like "I did this, then I did this, then I did this, and maybe I did that".
Maybe it's better in the original German, but in English it should have been a crime to kill trees to make paper to print this book.
