The premise is brilliant and the characters believable, but the best part of this book is the narrator's deadpan delivery of comedic lines. The overall tone is absolutely hilarious.
There were some technical errors, such as a tendency to switch between past and present tense. It wasn't enough to make the story unreadable, but it was somewhat distracting. The book probably could have used one last proofread. I also would have liked to see more exploration of why the protagonist loves his pizza delivery job so much--what drives him? What motivates him?
That said, this is an enjoyable read with a likeable protagonist. Also, the last line is perfect.
I would love to see a followup piece from the father's perspective. I think he'd have some interesting stories to tell.
