I found this book very funny even though 50% of the jokes flew over my head.
This book is set in Dublin. I have never been to Dublin, so I simply had to assume everything the narrator says about Dublin is 100% accurate.
Why am I using so many percentages in this review?
If you like black humor with some withering satire this book should appeal. It's not monochromatic by any means, and Green does a wonderful job of mixing the outrageous and the absurd with some genuine thrills and moments of pathos.
