Asking Too Much

by Charlotte Reads Classics

The Ask, Sam Lipsyte

This is marketed as (a) hilarious (b) culturally relevant.

I can’t think of a single thing that happens in this book that made me laugh. I hated all the characters. The plot was ok but it didn’t make a massive amount of sense. It was just nowhere near as good as I expected. I can get on board with the culturally relevant part. Sam, was it me?


This is by no means the worst book I have read but I think it just isn’t my cup of tea. I can, however, think of loads of people I’d recommend this to.
