What I want to know is why Lorenzo Carcaterra stated that he had no friends he could really talk to in his first memoir. If Sleepers is a true story, that is. And why he never missed more then 19 days of school before high school.
I thought the book was a good subject, poorly executed. I started reading it last winter and I still haven't gotten to the 150 page mark which means I haven't even gotten to the point of the story yet. Yes, it takes 150 pages of rehashing the details of their everyday lives over and over again before he even gets to the hot dog incident. And what's with Tommy? He was so unbelievably evil, like with that library incident. How could his friends not see that, if they existed. He was a serial killer waiting to happen.
