really liked it

I love the authenticity of characters' experiences & feelings

I have enjoyed how Eliot's books authentically incorporate various elements of real life within his fiction.

In his first books, I think he quite accurately reflected many aspects of the life, feelings, & ways of a tech startup founder.

In this book, I feel he accurately reflects what Burning Man represents to those that go.

In both cases, he wraps these with good, fun-to-read fictional stories about people, and narratives of their story actions and inner quandaries & development. It's good writing & reading, and I look forward to many more books from him.

One minor nit: Occasionally the inner reflections & references to earlier introspections can go on a bit longer than they ought. This is probably an outgrowth of, and one of the downsides of self-published books. It strikes me that professional editors from publishing houses are likely more at liberty to challenge authors with a red pen, which leads to tighter writing that reduces these kind of carried-on-too-long bits of a book.

However, my emphasis is that this is a *minor* nit. It should not stop one from reading the book.
