    " A shaggy dog story with great observations and very funny in parts. But... it is far too long, maybe twice as long as it needed to be; and the last section feels less well considered than the rest of the book, like the author just wanted to finish it. That's how I felt by the end. "

    " For those who think this novel is too long, those are Toltz trying to write for. Toltz is very charming in vividly elaborating what a self-proclaimed philosopher is thinking about. I have never read so many things that are exactly in my mind but never be able to say it out loud in one book. He is scary yet so honest in the same time. This is not the book you want to read in one seat because you need to think and re-think about what he means, what he is saying and the examples that are happening even when we read it. Yes it can be so tiring reading when you are not in your best mental state, but that's because he's putting a lot of reflections if not facts that we know are accurate. And sometimes we laugh and get a little bit irritated because we have become a part of it! I have to declare that Toltz is on my best thinker in the modern era. "
