Difficult to define. Not exactly a novel and lacking a central character, Goon Squad is an exploration of how lives interlink, and how pulling at one thread can send you off in unexpected directions. The narrative switches not just from person to person, but between time, tone and, interestingly, mode of narration. Somewhat chaotic and almost too adventurous to the extent it runs the risk of being frustrating, ultimately this book somehow succeeds.
