    i read this in 2 sittings, attached to the familiarity of it like it was me, like these were my friends the wildness and uncertainty, the gaps in time and perceived stability, the leaning in and out of love and vulnerability, the defining and redefining of ourselves through shared memory and experience all is represented here truly relatable in tragically pleasant, honest, and hilarious ways.

    Some of the cleanest, freshest descriptions I ve read just for a random example, A snowplow went by in a cloud of silted exhaust that stained the snowbanks brown We watched its orange and yellow lights flicker as it dropped the blade with a harsh metal scrape, before gathering, and running cleanly along the snow again And a great title But in the end it doesn t get any better than that.The narrative voice suffers from terminal millennial coolness The book itself proves to be the the s Some of the cleanest, freshest descriptions I ve read just for a random example, A snowplow went by in a cloud of silted exhaust that stained the snowbanks brown We watched its orange and yellow lights flicker as it dropped the blade with a harsh metal scrape, before gathering, and running cleanly along the snow again And a great title But in the end it doesn t get any better than that.The narrative voice suffers from terminal millennial coolness The book itself proves to be the the solution to the narrator s angst a novelistic ars poetica, an episodic narrative written in the voice he would use in an email is this the contemporary version of the authentic voice that the narrator his name never stuck likens to a mix tape A mix tape, Or, he writes in the next sentence and I ll just let him take it from here , it s opposite, even A seemingly random series of Polaroid photographs, spread across a tabletop In each image you would see the protagonist You d recognize the changes in his face, and the shifts in his bearing The tenuous state of his relationships, and the limitless discoveries of self And suddenly you would find yourself internalizing the passage of time in each next image You would begin to make all of these connections for yourself The cities that he lived in the apartments that he kept the jobs where he worked And you would shed all of these skins, one by one Forgetting them completely once they were gone Friends and lovers going in and out of focus, as you flipped through the pictures, fast, then slow And, almost without realizing it, you would begin to see the narrator, right there in front of you You would finally take his voice into your head Because it is this transfer of consciousness that is your one and only constant in the novel The narrator s story must keep moving forward Laudable in intention But I got stuck at the forgetting, having to flip back each time I opened the book to recall what I d been reading And in place of the transference Roberts proposes, I was left with only the faintest trace Oh yeah, his name was Mike I think it was Mike

    This was by far one of the best books I have read in a long long time It tells the story of a 20 something year old man named Mike, living out his youth in post 9 11 America The chapters are vignettes of his life, offering a new story within each and a new side to his character and his growth This story shows many sides to life, work, love, violence, addiction, friendship, and everything that encompasses being young and ambitious It is inspiring and uplifting and well, well worth the read.

    This novel is intriguing and enthralling Not for someone who isn t a fan of muddled writing, though There was no set plotline, climax or theme, and the ending had no closure, but I enjoyed the freeform and the curiosity I was left with It truly is like a disorganized mixtape of unreliable memories, but there s a lot to learn nonetheless.Younger generational tendencies are interesting indeed Such as the crushing cynicism and constant existential crises of millennials with unwavering hopes and This novel is intriguing and enthralling Not for someone who isn t a fan of muddled writing, though There was no set plotline, climax or theme, and the ending had no closure, but I enjoyed the freeform and the curiosity I was left with It truly is like a disorganized mixtape of unreliable memories, but there s a lot to learn nonetheless.Younger generational tendencies are interesting indeed Such as the crushing cynicism and constant existential crises of millennials with unwavering hopes and dreams at the exact same time for a better president, a bestselling book, or unconditional love This strange but realistic disparity was amazingly represented through this book The lack of motivation on top of big dreams, the search for purpose, the idealism, the constant feeling of being lost in the world Watching the people around you fail or succeed, have families, move on, and become increasinglydistant like nostalgic memories Constantly moving somewhere between not having a care in the world and desperately wanting to belong somewhere All these emotions were painfully well addressed A very interesting novel indeed, one that s easy to get lost in

    I despised this book I forced my way through the entire thing in the hopes that something of value would appear It did not.Basically, this is memoirs of an uninteresting and unlikable fellow.

    3.5 stars slow at times, and a not very likable protagonist but good language, and a few stand out moments of heartbreak or triumph.

    I mean.I would refer to a millenial about how well this book defines millenials I myself am a Xenial, teetering at the very end of Generation X and the beginning of Millenials I understand Mike s frustration with his post college life I too grew up with parents who told me I could be anything I want, as long as I worked hard and got a degree, the world was my oyster Only to graduate and find there is no oyster, but there is a clusterfuck of employment problems, healthcare problems, and v I mean.I would refer to a millenial about how well this book defines millenials I myself am a Xenial, teetering at the very end of Generation X and the beginning of Millenials I understand Mike s frustration with his post college life I too grew up with parents who told me I could be anything I want, as long as I worked hard and got a degree, the world was my oyster Only to graduate and find there is no oyster, but there is a clusterfuck of employment problems, healthcare problems, and violence to navigate It was just okay for me Yes, there is a lot to overcome for people in this age group Something has to change But sometimes I got so annoyed with Mike and his stupid cow book

    While there were moments stories I loved, there were also moments that felt tremendously unnecessary self indulgent The way Roberts captures the millennial malaise is one that resonated with me and maybe that s why I didn t love the book hitting too close to home but maybe it s just because I ve read these stories before I can read what I ve lived, in fact sometimes that s a really nice thing, but Roberts too often didn t do anything new with his tales And when he did, it was enough to While there were moments stories I loved, there were also moments that felt tremendously unnecessary self indulgent The way Roberts captures the millennial malaise is one that resonated with me and maybe that s why I didn t love the book hitting too close to home but maybe it s just because I ve read these stories before I can read what I ve lived, in fact sometimes that s a really nice thing, but Roberts too often didn t do anything new with his tales And when he did, it was enough to make me angry that he wasn t doing itfrequently

    Chapter by chapter this book felt all over the place but looking at it as a whole it fell into place Modern day, quick story that was a nice break between some of the heavier historical fiction I usually read I enjoyed this new author I would rate it a 3.8 if allowed but rounded up to a 4.
