Really enjoyed both the 1920's setting and the suspense. Am looking forward to seeing more of all the characters in the next book.

Insanse. Witty. Addictive. I'm not sure how to describe this one. It was wildly imaginative, and painfully honest, in a crazy Alice-and Wonderland sort of way. The characters were nutty, genuine, and real despite the bizarre situation(s) they were in. At times they were annoying, at times I had no idea what was going on, and at times I wanted to laugh (or cry) and the absurdly honest story underneath it all. It reminded me a crazy road trip, one that I wouldn't take twice, but I would never regret it either. The second to last chapter was perfect, right at the end.… (mais)

I might have hated this book if I'd read it, but listening to the audiobook was a treat. My stars! I cracked up over and over again, not just because the story and the narration were so outlandishly ridiculous, but because I couldn't believe Libba Bray herself did such a good job performing all the characters (there were tons of accents going on in this book--British, southern, Australian, Midwestern, weird-fictional-country). Completely over the top, but totally fun.
