Bu kitabı sevmediğimi söylediğim için üzgünüm. Bu bir çocuk kitabı klasiği ve onu seven birçok insan tanıyorum, ama benimle konuşmadı. Norton Juster’ın The Dot ve Line’ının büyük bir hayranıyım ve her zaman Jules Feiffer’in çizimlerinden hoşlanıyorum, ancak büyümüş olarak Phantom Tollbooth bana çok öğretici ve öngörülebilir geliyordu.
What can I say about Nick Twisp that you aren't already thinking? He's perverted, he's smart, he's dangerous, and he's out to get me! I read this book in two days like I was smoking rock out of a chimney. The way Payne writes it, life comes in two flavors: acerbic and bitter. But we make the best out of it, and we always always always gotta go for the girl no matter what, no matter how ridiculous and unpleasant and grueling and humiliating the journey is. Because pretty girls have low self esteem and that gives average guys a better chance. "Wait," you might be saying. "Is that really the point of the novel?" Well, I don't know, probably not. That shit was probably an existential voyage into the mind of oppressed and struggling artists. But when I think about it, man, all I can remember is how fucking awesome that summer was, and how those characters will probably resonate with me for a long time. Especially the girls. I will always remember Sheeni and Apurva.
