Review: A Visit from the Goon Squad

A Visit from the Goon SquadA Visit from the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


An intricately-constructed, resonant, and dreamlike read, about believable people in real places and times (even when stepping into the future). Very impressive and immersive.

Messy, soulless, lacking in subtlety, and with far too many literary devices.

(The book, not your review ;P)
