    " This was pretty good, but nowhere near as good as Absurdistan (by the same author, and really funny). It was a bit rambling and the main character was kind of annoying at times. He was supposed to be, of course, but it just rubbed me the wrong way at times. But, I did enjoy it. "

    " I really enjoyed this, though maybe for his third book Shteyngart might think about a turn away from the bumbling NY jew accidental mafioso genre, lest he pigeonhole himself. "
