    i had a very hard time getting into the book. a lot of the beginning seemed very unnecessary. reading him, you can tell he’s a good writer so part of me wants to go back to it, i so want to read genre fiction done well, but it feels like he’s trying to hard to make mask it as literary fiction and add all the bells and whistles that go along with that. there are just as many tropes to “literary” fiction as there is to “genre” and the trick is to write both without letting the reader know which one is being written.

    nice podcast btw. i love the book clubs even if not the book.

    You may prefer Duncan’s The Last Werewolf.

    Glad you’re digging the book club. I’m personally having a little more fun with this next one, When the Sacred Ginmill Closes. Podcast coming soon.
