There hits a point in life, when you realize, it’s okay to not finish books. While A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius has its merits, inventive use of language, humor, and energy, it also is long winded, verbose and seethes with angst. One hundred pages in and I couldn’t take anymore of Eggers flipping between sulkiness, anger, overcompensation, and imaginative exaggerations that stretch for pages.
