After reading one or two chapters of Steve Almond's Candy Freak, one is tempted to think of him as a Dave Barry kind of guy. [And there is much geeky fan girl love for Dave here] But that is not the case. Steve has a insightful, witty and thought provoking style all his own. Reaching the end of this candy filled trip is akin to deciding a third date is in order with a particular person. You come to see that Steve has his flaws, but you like those flaws as is. Candy Freak will leave you wanting more candy and more of Steve's writing.
