Super Sad True Love Story by Gary Shteyngart
Super Sad True Love Story

MJHERBEST, January 5, 2011

In a post-literate world where books are artifacts, Shteyngart's biting satire had me laughing out loud. The latter half takes a darker turn but the author holds on to the reader with characters and plot devices that had me feeling a bit like the voyeuristic consumers depicted in the novel. How do you rate?
