People don't get this book. Its about cars, and what they meant to the adolescent youth of the age. In a lot of ways, nothing has changed. The cars and some of the rules change. But the bottom line is, a guy with little otherwise going for him, can attain a degree of popularity and self discovery by building a car and being a part of the culture. People that expect this book to mean what it did when they were kids are idiots.
I think it is a 5 star book.
