Review: Apathy and other small victories


By Paul Neilan

The only reason I picked up this book is because it was highly recommend from Max Barry and I really like his books. Paul Neilan’s has a talent for the wickedly funny and sarcasms. This story revolves around Shane who is the probably the laziest person you will meet, he is extremely apathetic just as the title of the book suggests. The story is nothing short of erratic and hilarious, and you’re trying to keep up and piece together events taking place in Shane’s life. He meets people of different kinds in his apartment and the different bars, as well as his girlfriend getting him a temp job in her insurance company that he really doesn’t want.

This book is nothing short of bold, nasty, and brutally funny. I loved reading this book, I would honestly start laughing because of the things that Shane would think and say to people. There are things said and done in this book that you would never come close to doing, but you have thought about in your mind. This book is as creative as it gets when it comes to real life circumstances, all the instances that get pieced together is so funny and sociably unacceptable that you really believe it could happen to someone. I just can’t recommend this book enough, but if you’re the type of person that prefers to be politically correct then this isn’t the book for you. I just think it’s the funniest book I have read yet.
