The first three chapters were unintelligible and there could not have been an editor involved. One word sentences-too much like a movie script than a novel.
Quirky, albeit entertaining! I found this mystery detective story / rescue mission took bends in the road up a mountain to hidden cult followers. Hidden is the operative word. The teenager gone missing was hidden among a strange group. Heist is living with a hidden past. All searching for a hidden part of themselves. Raw, funny writing. "They put her in a feather crown....with necklace of claws across her breasts. The ornaments were maybe nothing more than chicken feet salvaged from a barbecue picnic, but the effect was ominous as sh%#t."
It seems Lethem is giving up on America for now, disgusted by our deep societal divisions and shallow responses. So the parts of the book that refer to contemporary politics let me cold. However, the writing, the mystery, the characters, and the love story are great!
Skip this one.
Did not finish. Poorly written.
Funny, apocalyptic, brutally violent--our surreal American moment.
