An engaging coming-of-age novel is alright. Nothing wrong with them, of course, but they come along so often that I can usually take or leave them. This is an engaging coming-of-age novel with the right dash of humor, and the right dash of linguistic and existential philosophy. It features an anger-inducing and sympathetic cast of characters, who inspired in me a powerful emotional reaction, because they felt exactly like the anger-inducing, sympathetic characters I knew in college, and you did, too.
