In his first novel, Dave Eggers has written a moving and hilarious tale of two friends who fly around the world trying to give away a lot of money and free themselves from a profound loss. It reminds us once again what an important, necessary talent Dave Eggers is.

I tried. I REALLY tried. I have always been told that you either like or hate Eggers. This was my first go around and unfortunately, it wasn't for me. That isn't to say his other work is bad I just maybe wouldn't start with this one.

I feel like people either love or hate Dave Eggers, but this adventurous story of round-the-world travel, grief and feeling a bit lost hit me at the right time in my life when I read it in my early 20's on a beach in Cambodia. Eggers' writing style is always engaging and I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys finding meaning in travel and adventure in early adulthood.
