Read from June 12 to 15, 2011

This book is a bot of a novelty item, and I bought on a recommendation from a friend, and also, because I really like a couple of the authors involved. The novel is a sort of performance-art project written live by 36 different authors and then published with proceeds going to help writers in the Seattle area.

Honestly, the things that I think would turn most people off the novel really led me to like it more than I thought I would. The different voices and only a little bit jarring, I think it serves more to keep the story interesting and evolving. Which is good because the story is a little bit pedestrian.

Also, I think the different authors really help to create a completely dynamic character.

An easy read, a good read, I would totally recommend. This book kind of shook me out of a reading rut with it's totally original concept.
