That said, very interesting collection of random thoughts well written into a rather short story of his day or his current – rather depressing life.
You could argue that a; he deserves to fall apart after the life he has led b; that he really should go to a doctor as the bits that are falling apart could be serious – but c; he is a coward, and d; perhaps his health is so bad that he is going to die young so why bother?
Should you read this? Try a sample chapter or two to make up your own mind. It is probably quite good for a book group as it certainly provides lots of opportunity for discussion!
So only read this if you don’t mind being made somewhat depressed about the state of society and the world. And not if you are a hypochondriac – which of course, the author might be, but I doubt it. Certainly not an upbeat book!
