Why they give letterman jackets to the band is something I will never get. I guess it's just thrown in there to show that he's a Once again, I think the author used it excessively as a reminder--in case I forgot--that he's a guy, and that's how guys think and talk: Okay, so one of my biggest pet peeves are unlikable narrators, and guys I just really disliked Tyler. A w I think this book would work for a lot of readers, but I just had a lot of run-ins with Not After Everything that prevented me from truly enjoying it. A woman with one of the most unfortunate faces I've ever seen--eyes too close together, nose too long, serious lack of a chin, and the kind of buckteeth I didn't know still existed after the advent of orthodontics--enters with her equally ugly son, who's either suffering from severe ADHD or he's just done a line of coke. Then she takes my index finger in her mouth and sucks on it. If stuff like that doesn't bother you, then otherwise, really, the book isn't so bad. If that little finger-sucking display is any indication of how fun she might be, perhaps I will call her. Michelle Levy writes those parts with so much feeling, and towards the end I was pretty choked up. But what got me was how the author captures the abusive relationship between him and his father. All in all, the cons outweighed the pros big time for me, which is why I couldn't give this more than 2 stars. I don't mind pissing Sheila off. Well, yeah Man, her tits! It didn't even feel like an ending.
