"Caterwauler" by Chris Masuda is an out-there book. If you're looking for a book jampacked with philosophy and the "whats and whys' of life, then this book is for you.
Story takes place primarily in a sex shop, involving a young man searching for himself, with an emphasis on his ups and downs along the way. He meets a young girl, she works in the same shop, and slowly his life begins to turn around. But the book does have a positive message though.
One section bothered me; it involved the young man speaking to an old man of the streets. Those 60 pages waxed and waned too philosophical for me. I had a lot of trouble wading through that.
Overall, "Caterwauler" is very different from anything I've ever read. I rate this book 4 stars only because I had a tough time dealing with all the philosophy. Mr. Masuda keep writing, your stories are unique.
