This was such an unusual yet interesting read. I listened to it via audiobook which I would recommend. The format was confusing and difficult to follow, even to the point that I initially thought there was an issue with the audio recording. However after going back and reading reviews, I realized that this was intentional. Anyway the audio narration made all the difference and helped to better define each perspective being told especially since it was told like a documentary but without any context or connection between scenes.

I'd recommend it to anyone who is looking for something totally different and refreshing from a writing style point of view. I appreciated the language and candor brought into each topic. It was more about expression in the here and now than the actual direction and flow of a cohesive story which somehow added an element of intrigue.
