's review

really liked it
bookshelves: sf

I originally thought of giving this a three star because even though I probably write in a similar fragmentary stream of conscious style, I would like an author to give more thought in a book. You feel a slight cop-out on the author's part reading the last chapter trying to tie-in together the bits and pieces revealed before.

However, giving it some thought I think I get the structure of this book and it's kinda amazing that the author is even able to end the story in a satisfying manner. Some of it feels far-fetched, but in the age of Trump who knows? Even a cautionary tale feels very apt.

Anushka Jha You're right! The narrative style makes so much more sense now!
