Richard Howes reviews novels he's read (he doesn't get much chance to read them, but reviews... no problem!), and presents his own work for your purview (that's high falutin language for "Letting you judge his work"), plus he provides comments about general random things.
Awesome book. Read it. See the movie. Everything they say about how great it is is true. A little boring at the beginning when he starts a dissertation about religion, but only a couple pages too much of that... Easy to skim over.
