Part memoir, part graphic novel, part straight up oddness, comedian Patton Oswalt offers stories of his life with an emphasis on his teen and young adult years in the mid to late 80s. There is an emphasis on teen culture and social interaction in the days when Dungeons & Dragons and Star Wars were EVERYTHING to the author. I was drawn to this book by Harlan Ellison's blurb on the back cover, and it lived up to Unca' Harlan's hype. Recommended, particularly to those who grew up in the 70's and 80's and/or those who appreciate a dark sense of humor.
Awesome book. Which is why almost everyone has read it. Excellent writing, engaging story. My only complaint is about some of the graphically violent scenes. They needed to be in the story, but knowing that didn't make them any easier to read and think about.
Seemed a bit impersonal and dragged a bit.
