I have read and reviewed two other books by this author and this collection felt as good, if not better than the others.
Wallace and his friends lead simple lives with some lofty ideas at times. They live in a small town, with limited people who make appearances ( seagulls, and one in particular also participate). Since the previous collection, his parents have become less tired and both of Wallace’s parents show more of their daily life this time around. I still enjoyed Spud’s paranoia and random musings of Wallace’s as well as Sterling’s intrusions into the narrative. The pattern is similar to the last two visits but it still felt new and fresh. Theirs is a simple life and once I started I kept going, chuckling to myself till I set it down after having turned the last page (metaphorically, I had a digi-copy)
I received an ARC thanks to NetGalley and my review is entirely based on my reading experience with this and the previous two collections by the same author.
