The Raw Shark Texts

This is now one of my favourite books. It reminded me of Tom Robbins and Kurt Vonnegut and Chuck Palahniuk.

It was a fascinating concept and had a single perspective, but I turned every page eagerly. Beautifully realised with echos to other great novels. I loved the otherworldliness within this world. I loved the vunerability and withdrawal of grief, then the expansion into discovery and life. It is a fscinating and refreshing novel.
