The story bounces back and forth between stories of the Robert's childhood, and his current predicament, in the hospital with his dying mother. The characters are twisted, hate runs through their veins. Robert is the only one who seems to be somewhat normal, and that says a lot.
You'll read this book, and realize your life isn't as bad as it could have been compared to Robert. Getting to know Robert throughout this his effed up life, was an adventure I'm glad I embarked on. I found it humorous, enough to laugh out loud at some parts. Robert's life is so accurate to so many people out there, you can't help but feel the frustration he feels.
I really appreciated the vocabulary Woody uses throughout the book, it definitely kept me interested. Of course, with a vocabulary like his, there were no spelling or grammar issues, as expected. The title itself was interesting enough for me to pick this book up, I wish it had a better cover to match.
I give this book 5/5.
