A fine debut novel by Goodreads author Eddie Wright, about a young man struggling to find a sense of self and purpose -- what he identifies as "somethingness." The story is strongest when it's inside Frank's consciousness, when Wright's ideas shine through. The writing was a bit weak in some patches, and the dialogue, especially in the early scene with the waitress, was a tad off. But when the book is good, it's very good. I'll look forward to seeing how this writer develops in the future.
