How can I survive this (adult) life?
10 May 2003 | by See all my reviews

A student's life is hard. One is already an adult, but still penniless. The protagonist-student here is surviving by being a paper-boy running from door to door and accumulating "world-anger". He gets an inside-look of this rotten, hypocritical human kind. He hates 'em all. But life must go on...

Comparable with the "Fight Club"-terrorist-movement, but here the individual stays alone and breaks down (losing even his best friend). We can neither live happily nor kill ourselves. We must keep running...
