liked it

I've never read something quite like this. The format worked pretty well at some points, but in others it looked like an exercise in creative writing that someone tried really hard to make work.

I enjoyed the different voices (even though I had to keep notes at times, it was so chaotic) and by the end I was caring deeply about the protagonists.

I also found joy in the small glimpses of dark humour throughout the book. Recommended, even for the format alone.
(3.5/5)
