Say there was a novel in which Holden Caulfield was an alcoholic and Lolita was a photographer's assistant, and somehow they met in Bright Lights, Big City. He's blinded by love. She by ambition.
Diary of an Oxygen Thief is an honest, hilarious, and heartrending novel but, above all, a very realistic account of what we do to each other and what we allow to have done to us.

an emotional rollercoaster
the beginning I hated him, the middle I felt he had a turning point, the end I wanted to cry for him. A story about the way we treat each other, brilliantly told in a way that makes you reevaluate your own relationships.
the reading was phenomenal.

Not Sure About This One
I have no idea how to even review this book. First off, if you are offended by sex and profanity, this is not for you. There were parts of this book where I was completely turned off by his misogynist attitude and I kept thinking "what a creep." I also kept thinking that this reminded me of some of the guys I dated in my 20s. But there were other parts that interested me, such as his experience working in the ad agency, his move to Minnesota, and the woman who treated him like he had been treated. And while I cringed at some parts, I also chuckled at some (the mosquito being the state bird of Minnesota and his description of his masturbation techniques come to mind). So, overall, I had to give this a neutral 3 star rating.
