Deliciously satirical look at all that is wrong in the lifestyle of North American upper middle class from the point of view of a 19 year old. Fun read with lots of tongue in cheek comments.
This book has "its genesis in a notorious American "true crime mystery" of the late twentieth century", and it's not difficult to figure out the mystery on which it is based. However, it is acknowledged as a work of fiction, and my guess is it bears little resemblance to the real incident(s). However, it is a fascinating look at the consequences of the mysterious death of a child prodigy, written from an unexpected perspective and in an unusual voice (the "author" often speaks to the reader). I have to admit I was a teensy bit dissatisfied with the ending, but it didn't detract from my overall enjoyment of the work.
