This is a book I couldn't put down and found myself constantly checking how close the end was, because I never wanted that time to come. And when it did come, I wasn't pleased with it, not miffed, just not as pleased I was with the 320 pages that came before. I thought Shteyngart may have ran out of steam a bit and gave us a movie-script ending of a movie I enjoyed, but a movie nonetheless. While its ending in no way or form diminishes the book, I was left wanting but when I refer to the title it makes total sense - in true life, we always want more.
Lastly, when I read a book, I like the writing to have some sort of style or intelligence to it, this book left me with a gigantic void of vocabulary and like I had just come from reading 160 Facebook statuses in a row. It was mind numbing and I wish I could get back the time I spent on those 320 pages. Ugh. Big thumbs down, flip through the book before you buy to grasp how it's written. The story and the pathetic characters left me feeling very depressed - and I read this on a tropical island. Sigh, thanks for nothing Shteyngart.
