A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius

A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius - Dave Eggers
Wow, is this polarizing or what? lol.

Well, he warns you right from the beginning how full of shit he is (except with fancier vocabulary) so I don't really see the reason for the complaints. With that said, though, I can understand why someone wouldn't like the book.

Did I think it was all beautiful and deep with profound truths?

Uh... Nay.

But it definitely had its moments, mixed in with his self-important monologues and his ramblings. Even those I found mostly entertaining, though a little annoying after a while.

But then again, that was sort of the point, I think. Because some of it is real but some of it is a facade that's finally breaking at the end.

And I don't care who you are, if you wrote about yourself in this style for that many pages I would be fed up with you.

This is a book that I both loved and hated, and I recommend reading the quotes first to see how he writes, and checking out the contrasting reviews. If none of that scares you, you should go for it.
