really liked it
bookshelves: 2019

I really, really, REALLY enjoyed this and was so surprised by how genuinely weird it got! The writing was great, solid and punchy, and Ben is a great narrator, self-aware, but never smug. I LOVED Crab and Cisco and Fermona. I loved that Ben never loses sight of how much he loves his family, even when you think he might. I loved that the pace and style of the writing very often perfectly matched the pace and plot of the narrative, reflecting Ben's state of mind and the passage of time, especially considering how much the weirdness levels have to rise in order to match what Ben can withstand. This was just really fun and fast and weird and super satisfying and I'm super glad to have read it!
