This was recommened by a student who loved Catcher in the Rye. It is about a man that is so involved with his own success, life, and happiness that it all almost slips away. Because of the way it is told in retro spect from a third person omniscient narrator there, is a bit of confusion of where it is going or who is actually speaking. It is a nice surprise at the end to find out who the narrator actually was. A good story for teenagers or adults.
