A Lite Too Bright Reviews
Beautiful writing, the storyline was a bit convenient, but it was something I was able to look past. I would definitely recommend this!
I'm giving this five stars, not because it's perfect but because it has the most ambition of any book I've read in quite a while. This is like the love child of MOSQUITOLAND and a Pynchon novel. And while it's no CRYING OF LOT 49 it's got so much going for it that I can't help but give it the highest of marks. It is a bit long and oblique at times but I'll give Samuel Miller this: I read more YA books than anyone I know, and I can always see the story from a mile away, and even a hundred pages f ...more
This book was incredible. I read it on blind faith alone, wanting to support the author but knowing literally nothing about it, not even the genre. I finished it in two days.
It's truly gripping. There are so many elements that mesh together to make such a fascinating story, like Arthur's cynicism and mental instability, the rise and fall of the clues they find, where they're led, and the manner in which they are led. It's a mystery, but it's not. It's not some big mysterious murder that sends t ...more
Holy shit. What on earth did I just read???
this was a brilliant masterpiece, although slow at first it was done in such a wonderful and convincing way I thought I was in the story the entire time. I am so glad I randomly picked this up it was definitely worth it.
This book begins as a pretty typical mystery-adventure book about a troubled young man with a healthy amount of love-interest women. But it progresses into an insane story of a marxist, anarcho-communist cult conspiracy and an exploration of modern radicalism. Didn't expect that one.
It's really good. Last time I plowed through a book this quickly was, I think 4 months ago? It was about 36 hours. The beginning was a little slow and there were some red flags, especially surrounding the pr ...more
"I always love the moment where the desert gives way to the mountains, because it reminds me that the highest peaks are borne of the lowest valleys."
This book is incredible. I plowed through to the end and absolutely devoured this story. There are too many great things I'd like to say about this book, but I'll be brief.
-Arthur was definitely not my favorite character at first, but he grew on me because he's so lost. He has so many questions and very few answers. Overall, he's such a real, raw, b ...more
Aaaaaaaand . . . with that, I've completed my 2018 reading challenge! Yes!!
So I've actually been aware of this book for several months, since I accidentally stumbled upon the author's Twitter around the time of the book's release. His constant disuse of capital letters and other disregard for English grammar got kind of annoying there, but the premise of his book sounded interesting, so I figured his personal writing style would be a non-issue in a published work of fiction.
Ha. Did I have anothe ...more
