Hi everyone! Ok, so this delayed review is what happens when the night before it should be posted, you and your family decide to make a spontaneous trip to Disneyland. Therefore, once you and family have returned, you have completely forgotten about the review until NOW!
I thought this was a great book. I thought it was very funny, yet poignant in how it's the people in our lives that matter and not what is going on around us. Well yes, what's happening in the world is important, but the cars we drive, the houses we live in, the clothes we wear, all the technology we HAVE to have are pointless. when Joey loses his brother, his writing expresses what many of us may think and feel, but have never expressed. He has a provocative way of writing that makes you wonder if this guy is serious or sarcastic or both. I kept asking myself, "Wait, is he trying to be funny or is he really thinking this?" Maybe both.
Who is Joey Comeau?
Check him and some of his other writings out here: A Softer World
I will be back with breakdowns of my favorite chapters.
