I'm at a loss for what to say about this book. It's a testament to Libba Bray's writing talent that such a bizarre book has such a large readership, and that is meant as a compliment. I'd wondered why the book had such vague, disconnected summaries, and then I read the book, and it made sense. It's a vague disconnected book with the full randomness of life thrown in your face. There are some jewels of wisdom within the "random", but if you're looking for a plot that makes sense, this isn't the book for you. Throughout reading, my thoughts could best be summarized as "What on earth is this weirdness and why is it so good?" I can see how some readers could easily see the ending as a cop-out, and it is an undeniably strange book that messes with your mind but in doing so, delves to the core of who we are as human beings.
