I am a fan of dark comedy; it certainly is not for everyone, but for those who do enjoy dark or gallows humor, this is a great book. Sometimes that darkness sheds the most light on the truth of life, and I think this book does just that. This is an incredibly mix of humor, body horror, and stark reality regarding the politics of everyday life.
The characters in the book are strongly written, and really drive the action in this story. Dale is damaged in ways to which readers will easily relate. I found the writing to be fresh and new, and I am quite excited to see where Venturini goes from here. All in all, a great book.
