      The fact that it literally took mne around the world is worth something too. The actual text of the book is different in the paperback edition than in the hardcover. That most people are sleeping. As a final note, if you are considering this as a gift, I strongly suggest the hardback edition. Eggers's strengths as a writer are real: his funny pitch-perfect dialog; the way his prose delicately captures the bumblebee blundering of Will's thoughts;

      I cannot have them breathing there! The method of his storytelling does not lay everything out for it. He is the master of being self-effacing, and at the very same time self-indulgent. He comes into the large sum of money, but due to the recents tramautic events in his own life, feels the urge to use the money to help others who have suffered even more than him. But every country now seemed to offer a little of every other country, and every given landscape, I finally realised, existed somewhere in the US. This book doesn't, sadly, fully reflect that.

      It is definately a superbly crafted work. The money came Will's way more or less by accident his silhouette was used to market light bulbs and he regards it as a burden. While I was reading the book, I felt like Eggers was a two-year-old prancing around in front of the reading public saying, "Look at me! You Shall Know Our Futility By Meg on Apr 22, You're driving with your best friend on a last minute cross-country tear, moving her from one state to another in a matter of days, covering vast miles of exactly nothing, eating gas station food for three meals a day, and listening to your Reality Bites soundtrack skip in the CD player because you're both thirty and everything that movie prophesied for you has come true, in one way or another. All in all, I ripped through the book in about 3 days, thoroughly enjoying every distressing page of it. I found the second's character's writing to be boring and uninteresting

You Shall Know Our Velocity Book Summary and Study Guide

The method of his storytelling does not lay everything out for it. We're broken when people are rude. I'm not sure how I knew it, but the two people free-falling don't appear to be in any distress.

The machines do not rest, the systems rarely cool. Their first stop is Africa. Will's rememberance of his childhood are the most beautiful passages.

Their trip is a failure from start to finish - they never escape what they want to leave behind, and they never find where they want to be. I could be taken and eaten by these wet alleyways without protest. Instead they end up in Senegal, Morocco, Estonia, and Latvia, and unlike most adventure stories, rather than finding adventure they find only a dead end.

Will is in deep mourning Hand rather less so for their friend Jack, third member of their childhood knot, a famously safe and leisurely driver whose car was simply crushed by a speeding truck coming up behind. As the novel unfolds, we began to see that Will is mentally unstable, and he begins to have hallucinations about his dead friend Jack.

Anyway, mindful of the old adage of not judging a book by its cover, I bought the novel.
