Yeah! It's a fun read. think I like it better than Lot 49. Wasn't huge on the ending but it's still funny and real enjoyable.

So pumped for the movie!

This. Very accessible but not exactly 'Pynchon' but that's not a bad thing at all.

Here's a great 'trailer' for the book voiced by the man himself
