A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius – Dave Eggers

Rating: 3.5 stars
Shelf: Now Reading

Eggers is a fantastic writer. Both humorous and deep. I laughed just about as much as I cried. I mean, I didn’t really cry – but AHWOSG was heavy enough to make my heart hurt. And there were moments that… I was laughing at the same time my heart was hurting. Because that’s life, you know? And Eggers presents life – his life – perfectly.

Still, because it was so heavy at times, I had a hard time getting through it. And unlike Raven (which was so heavy it took me over a year to finish), there wasn’t anything about it that affected me deeply enough to stay with me for weeks (or months, in Raven’s case) on end.
