Negative thoughts (perhaps I'm yet able to get it if positively) on what I think to make this book unaccessible: the interweaving of 3 main plots ("Tennis academy", "Drug rehab", "Canadian terrorist") needs editing, the timeline construction and monologue storytelling elude readers; usage of overwhelmingly (math, science, art, geopolitics, humanity...) technical terms, made-up words and vernacular from all social strata, scarce punctuation, ranting with too much details, - a big collection of showing off; Notes section is vast and mixed with heavy (and valuable?) references to "drug taxonomy and usage", but also disguised with some of the best and important content that should be upgraded from the footnote; the book must have been written under influence, the nauseous ending does not close any plots in the book.

It's hardly of comparison with most books in the market, guess whoever (not a weak-gutted) read through it would give high remark. It's not my all time favorite though, aside from profound humor of human life, I sometimes found this book endearing (location, time -wise, and every day human being) and intimate, wish to join a bookclub dedicated to this opus.
