Perhaps I just did not get this one, but it seemed pretentious at best.
A book with basically one character who sits in place and complains for 156 pages is pretty much torture.
The author wrote the whole book as one long paragraph which only added to the sigh factor.
Sure there were four or five good lines in the book, but there was a lot of suffering otherwise.
Geez, now I'm starting to sound like the man in the book...
