    SECTION 3 is an application of the previous two sections to demonstrate that people are generally unhappy because they don’t know what’s good for them because they’re fucking idiots.

Truth is the ultimate defense?

    God, I sure hope not. I’ve already started East of Eden and it’s fuckin’ lyrical. If I finish that book as pissed off as I was when I finished this one I’m gonna be bummin’.

You won't; probably the finest book written in the English language in the 20th century. Stiff competition and I still have no problem with that statement; so. Following this tag, can't wait for the rest of your reviews as they trickle down. Wish I had more time to read.
