The two stars do not mean that I didn't enjoy this. Because I did, I truly did. It was witty, honest and most of all it seemed real
, like something that could actually happen for someone, even today.
I especially liked the ironic descriptions of the post office and the endless bureaucracy, with its illogical rules and depressingly petty employees.
But as much as I enjoyed the novel, I just couldn't get used to the messy and seemingly careless writing. It was extremely unpolished - perhaps even unfinished - in a way that ruined my reading experience entirely. Some passages even reminded me of "On the Road" by Jack Kerouac, and I do not mean that as a compliment.
