I will not and cannot give an insightful review of this book. I did really enjoy it, although some of it was over my head. I will however write one of my favorite passages from this book.
...I brought all this on myself by telling Ramona the story of my life-how I rose from humble origins to complete disaster...But I am diligent. I work at it and show steady improvement. I expect to be in great shape on my deathbed. The good die young but I have been spared to build myself up so that I may end my life as good as gold
