The most incredible thing by this renowned book is that it reads like a stream of consciousness. Better than like talking to a friend, Better than reading someone's diary, Better than hearing someone's thoughts; It is closer to thinking yourself. It wouldn't be out of place inside your own head. I think that it is so relevant to teenagers despite the fact it's not about a teen as its a journey of self discovery and self loss that doesn't talk down to you. It doesn't feel like it's been mulled over and edited for effective. I could read it a hundred times easily.
