's review

did not like it

I really wanted to love this book. The concept is so trippy and ingenious – I wish I had come up with it.

But I could only get about 30 pages in before I had to put it down. There were multiple lines that made me laugh out loud – and they were not supposed to be funny.

My favorite? "'Flow!' cried Sister Teasel. 'Don't swallow, let it come!'"

I mean… Seriously. What beta reader or editor would NOT read that line and see something comically sexual about it?
