It took me a little bit to get into It But Once I Got but once I got I found the book to be very funny and so cynical I m not really familiar with Syd Barrett but that didn t really bother me The ending was a bit dissapointing was kinda hoping for a real dark ending like A Simple Plan or SO BUT NOTHING LIKE THIS BUT OVERALL STILL WORTH but nothing like this But overall still worth for me My Review So so took me way too long to read such an easy read not a good sign As far as a novel goes though I did finish it captive audience on a 30 min bus ride morning and night Interesting use of NO uotation marks though I almost felt like I was a part of the conversationWhat I Learned Keep stories about obsessive compulsive issues to short story style aka The Yellow Wall Paper one of the worst books I ve ever read It s painful to read as Phillip the main character receives gifts from his wifes best friends Barry and Sean and feels the pressure to return gifts that outdo the gift given A power struggle evolves with him turning nasty and ugly and completely irrationalthrown in a few boring charateres I did enjoy this nearly gave it 5 A man attempts to compete with his wife s gay friends gifts and fails miserably It s funny and touching I loved all the Syd Barrett stuff but then I m a fan2003 notebook lovely detail about football and middle class lives and relationships on the periphery of the film industry writing a script falling to pieces with a sinister Syd Barrett fan grating his skin into the salad adding blood to the soup at his anniversary party Very impressed although doesn t sustain it to the end I haven t really got a lot of good things to say about this bookFather of twins and mildly neurotic the main character Phi.
