Touching and well written. ( )

I enjoyed this book quite a bit with its dry humor and different father-child relationships that all make the same point that we will most likely fail as parents but need to keep trying, all of this with the backdrop of the Rocky Mountains. ( )

The narrator's attitude towards women was so unpleasant that I actually couldn't read any more - the final straw was commenting that a woman who was wearing leggings needed a Brazilian!

The trick of this novel is the fitting together of people who don't fit at all. The characters are all pretty much totally unlikable on paper. The author finds the totally likeableness of each. It is all improbable and really charming. The occasional reference to the area I live in was also fun and nice. ( )
