At times funny, at times sad... PR's late gap year story flows well and grips the reader in this quest.
There were a few instances where I thought PR sounded whiny.... in my mind, maybe self-absorbed. But, these instances were few and far between and I was able to get past that with PR's everyday life stories in adapting to a completely different way of life.
I'd recommend this book to anybody who's considering anything of this magnitude, who's looking for something... perhaps not easily named, but readily familiar, to anybody who's questioned the meaning of life.
Good job PR.
(Although I reserve judgement to change my rating once I get to the end. I hear the ending might be rushed.)
