This book is a masterpiece. The end.

I didn't enjoy this book at all. I would never recommend it to anyone.
Debra (09/27/02)

I, literally, did not want this book to end. I am awaiting his next, whether it be fiction or non-fiction. He cannot write it fast enough. Mr. Eggers has a true talent in making the harsh realities of life hysterically entertaining and heart-lightening.

Dave Eggers is a slam-dunk writer. Thank you Dave, for sharing your life. You wear it well, my friend.
