The words he fits together, seriously, they're like magic. The strangest feelings a person can have, Brockmeier can find the right words for them. So if you're reading to enjoy perfect beauty in language, this is your book.

Also, his concepts are unique. No regular old, coming-to-terms-with-abusive-parents/cheating wife/middle-aged-angst here. This guy is using a chunk of his brain most of us just don't.

But...they just aren't very compelling plots. It's just, a bunch of lovely and strange stuff that happens.
