In this age of vote-casting based on complex issues reduced to meme, it's refreshing to meet K, who can only take things literally.

i liked Curries pace and style. The first part of the book was different from most and I wondered which way the story would go. Soon some sanity blended into the plot and what had worried me before now had me laughing. Currie is a very intelligent and talented writer. I look forward to his next projects.

I love Currie's wit and quirky characters, but the relationships in this book felt a little flat to me. Currie is also usually excellent at balancing funny and melancholy at the same time, but at times the book is too melancholy, even bitter.
