Wow. I don't even know where to start. I had a difficult time in the beginning because it seemed as if a psychotherapist was writing this and much of the terminology was over my head, and so much of it that I found myself skimming. But my confusion, and even my boredom, soon turned to fascination. I became completely absorbed with the story, stopped skimming and even learned a thing or two. I thought the writing was brilliant, the story infactuating and really got caught up with the main character, Nate. There were some extraordinary characters along the way and Nate's stay in the hospital and 'mental ward' (if that is politically correct) was both alarming and amusing - some pretty witty stuff there. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I'm hoping for more.
