Imago

A deep psychological insight which make me laugh. Yes, the effect of the book is so humorous, looking at the protagonists psychological and emotional fight with himself, and people around him, he is so full of illusions, that the reader can se through, but the laught is never at him, but with great compassion with human folly.
