Read full description of the books:
I know I know. I must be kooky to give it 4 stars. But the truth is, I "really liked" the book when I read it. Context wise, let's just say I was mindnumbingly bored - for a period of almost 4 months - where all I had for entertainment was a gym membership (where only one treadmill worked) and the dumbest holiday ever at this lameass "resort" that kept telling its guests "if you want to talk, take it outside" in the restaurant cause this owner-whoever guy was busy "practising" for his guitar strumming at night as the "live music" for the night.
Then he proceeded to "release" his "single" in the very restaurant, after yelling at a kid to not touch his guitar and it pretty much was this pre-fed tune on the synthesizer over which he sang some really average lyrics which were pretty remeniscent of 90s Indi-pop songs (Remember "Aryans" and "The Colonial Cousins"? ).
So we came back from the shiteous road trip "vacation" where all we did was get out of the room 3 times a day and eat food - nothing to go out and explore or eat or buy or do because its a bloody lake which was half dried up and had two plastic boats in it as its tourist magnet.
Obviously I sat on my gym membership cause I realised the one thing in common with everyone in the gym I saw, was that everyone remained fat.
Oh the book, yes. So basically it came to me then. It was fun for the 3 hours that I finished it in.
