  • Plot- or character-driven? A mix
  • Strong character development? It's complicated
  • Loveable characters? It's complicated
  • Diverse cast of characters? It's complicated
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? Yes


Truly one of the most unique books I've ever read. Highly recommend it for everyone, but especially for fans of House of Leaves, postmodernists, people reading on their lunchbreak at the Leftist Infighting Factory, those of us who are acutely aware of their own body parts to the point of obsession, unmedicated neurodivergent teenagers, ex-arachnophobes (and those intent on becoming such), fans of run-on sentences, and those of us who can never remember if we're disassociating or not.
