I completely agree with this comment. I had to spend 6 weeks focusing on this book in my Senior year of high school and I was so pissed I had to write a paper on existentialism. One kid turned in a paper that just said "nothing" in the middle of the page. It was awesome. I would burn that book if I could find it.
