the book is well written, a strange story of a "man-boy" not really sure how to exist in this world. "thomas" kidnaps various people, an astronaut, or rather a man who wanted to be one, a congressman, his mother and others. He is crazy as a fruit-fly, and his ramblings get madder as the book goes on.

Eggers can sometimes be weird, but this book shows how somebody gets from weirdness to shooting up a school. Its a different read.
