I guess I just don’t like Libba Bray’s Diviners series. It should be awesome, a Prohibition era X-Men of sorts. But two things just kill it for me. One, the goddamn slang. She douses it like a teen girl mixing cocktails. It’s like James Joyce if everyone were talking like Mr. Burns. I can’t handle it. Two, she checklists everything like she’s filling out a Which Wich bag — Asian, black, gay, sexually assaulted, social anarchists, interracial relationship. If there were depth, it’d be one thing, but they just feel slapped on like bumper stickers.
