Oh, hai! I read books, then I write down what I think of them.
I was really hopeful about this book. I expected a cross between Rivers of London and Douglas Coupland set in a book shop; or Scarlett Thomas and Douglas Coupland set in a book shop; instead, it's a cross between Dan Brown and somebody who admires Douglas Coupland, also there's a book shop.
It started out really good. Then it gradually became okay. Then, at 83%, something happens which feels like it must be a reference to a book or something else I'm unfamiliar with because the only other explanation is that the author had some major plotting problems. That is not my biggest criticism about the book. I'm going to mention it here, so if you don't want to know, go and play elsewhere, 'k?
