Goofy but surprisingly profound
I found this book extremely enjoyable from start to finish. The writing style was very well-executed, as it hold your interest and helps the story flow pretty well. You'd think a book about a regular old guy just going through life would be boring, but it really held by interest the entire time. I guess part its charm is that the premise is so simple, but its execution really is what elevates it. The characters were interesting, the descriptions were amusing, the fourth wall was broken a couple of times (which I enjoyed). The societal commentary was clever, and although I disagreed with some of it I appreciate it nonetheless. I don't know why, but I found the ending very touching, very beautiful. It felt satisfying. And then you read that last paragraph and it's a callback to the randomness of the rest of the book, which I think was a good move on the author's part.

One big criticism for me, though, is the grammar. Misspelled words, extra letters where there shouldn't be any, missing punctuation--all of that makes the book feel very sloppy, rushed. A quick grammar check would've eliminated this issue. These grammar mistakes really distracted from the book, and as a reader, bad grammar like this is really a pet peeve of mine.
Overall, this was a pretty fun read. It's not for everyone, but as someone who's a fan of meta sitcoms and comedies, I found it to be a good read.
