I found the writing in this one incredibly over-wrought and florid, almost laughably so at some points. You are left with the impression of the narrator as being a pompous prat - which may well be the intention but it makes it a bit hard to stick with. The last hour or so is stunning, however.

The main point of this book appears to be adolescent self-absorption and it's as tedious to listen to as it is to observe in real life. The male characters are one-dimensional, the female characters are objects. A dash of humour or irony may have lifted the narrative, but this story takes itself extremely seriously. I struggled to the end only because I hoped it would redeem itself in the finale. It didn't.
