Most of the book consists of common people doing common things and discussing common issues which are neither eye-opening nor interesting. Good prose is about the only thing that keeps the book from becoming too tedious to read.
|Great satyric prose||Characters talk a lot but say very little|
|A couple of funny scenes||The story lacks imagination and interesting situations|
|A good portrayal of absurdity of modern war||Scenes of war come off as very impersonal, almost irrelevant|
|Good, even thought-provoking twist at the end||
The romantic relationship is shallow and underwhelming
