    2. Holy just holy, holy, holy A Fraction of the Whole starts good, stays good for five hundred pages and three continents, is laugh out loud funny throughout, at certain points made my jaw drop in astonishment horror, contains so many beautiful passages you know the kind where you go yes that s so true like one about how it takes a couple hours to feel the sun on city streets in the morning, and one about the sounds of swimming pools , and gives us a couple of unforgettable characters, who even tho [...]

    6. I am shocked to see anyone complain about this book being too long I spent the majority of my time laughing like a madwoman when I read A Fraction of the Whole Just this part alone made me think of all my cynical Hungarian elders, because man do they think like this The younger passengers let out cries of joy The older passengers knew that the key to happiness lay in keeping your expectations low They booed There was not one sentence that I would be happy seeing taken away WHAT A WORK OF FICTION [...]
