really liked it

First book I have ever read by Cooper, and once I gave myself permission to enjoy it, I read through it in less that 24 hours. I don't have a lot of literary comparisons or academic criticisms, but I know I enjoyed the layered corkscrew language and found myself laughing out loud more than once. I am not generally a huge fan of gut fucking shock and and sleight of hand narratives, but This one? This one kept me reading despite myself and somehow punched me in the heart at the end. There you go.
