"This is one of those books that make you slap your forehead and marvel at the intricate lies that ensnare the unwary, even as you check to make sure your wallet and your wits are right where you left them." ( O, the Oprah Magazine)
"The fun, flash, and fakery of Martin's story are all on the surface, expertly hooking the most casual browser. But underneath it's a timely capitalist satire (wide-eyed Canadian Bobby Clark's unsentimental education in the dastardly business of American consumer culture) that stealthily creeps toward heartbreak." ( New York Magazine)

Pointless and Mediocre
It was just kind of pointless.
Some sex, some drugs some action but there was no resounding moral or conclusion to the story.
It began well but than in the middle I said to myself "Wait a second what is the point"?

Johnthan Franzen fooled me
He has this on his list of five books to read this summer and it is the most pointless book I have read in a long time. Everything about it is unnecessarily gross, for no reason. I would have enjoyed learning about the jewelry business, without the theft and drugs and uninteresting relationships.
