I was excited about the concept of this book. The main character was really hard for me to feel any empathy or concern for, due to his vulgarity and lack of concern for anything but his own answers. Gifted with a second chance at life, I have a hard time imaging anyone spending it that way. The writing was, at times, hard to decipher. That said, I did find myself thinking about the book while I was away, and found the story line intriguing, if not quite expressed in the way I'd prefer.
