    Ultimately, this book is a bit of a letdown there is no real growth in the narrator He remains merely a spouter of wry observational comments of the world around him Perhaps his failure is the point Despite his prodigious memory, he is the superficial character that his own father perceived him to be He can recall facts, but does not understand their import Because he does not have any internalized identity, once his memory starts to go, his very existence has started to go This is also r Ultimately, this book is a bit of a letdown there is no real growth in the narrator He remains merely a spouter of wry observational comments of t...
