Does a review count if I just say “This is amazing, go read it.” 25 times in a row? Because this book is amazing, go read it. I had several people (including a few Cannonballers) mention this book to me. I’m not normally a space-type of girl (spacey, however, is another story,) but holy shit you guys, picking this book up was the best decision I’ve made this summer. I had no idea what this book was even about when I bought it. Aliens? Alienation? Space exploration? But I bought it (which I’m glad I did, because I’ve since lent it to my BIL and am waiting for his opinion) for my trip to the beach, thinking I would read it then. I was wrong, because as soon as I read the opening line, I was in. I mean, how can you not love a book that starts with the words, “I’m pretty much fucked.” You can’t. So just go read this book, okay?
