Like watching a sad clown
All in all, the comedy and the charisma of the dialogue, as well as the quality of description, was absolutely stunning. I want more of David in the midst of a pre-mid-life crisis. As a dark comedy fan, I really wanted to love this, but could only end up liking it. I thought more of it as a Woody Allen awkward comedy than a Seinfield sitcom. A lot of the events and chapters made sense up until the end, it felt like you were skipping after-scenes for the sake of an imprint the initial scenes had. Like you were rushing to get to the next bit. For example, when Elizabeth and Dave were at the burger joint. There was no end-clause, just Dave complaining abut the end-state of a corporate American food label which is fine, but the mention of other events unexplained and skipping around to the dialogue made it seem rushed and very "What you see is what you get,". I will be reading into this as it goes on, because it's not over yet, and I'm sure I might be wrong about some of my closure observations.
