city is perhaps the best book i have ever read. i recommend it to anyone for its depth and twisted comedy. do not listen to the book reviews, it is a great read for those who need something different than the prototypical literature.

baricco's City is a hit or miss work, only sometimes showcasing what the author or the story is actually capable of. the premise of the story enables for a wonderfully entertaining cast of characters to gather in what could be interpreted as existentially absurd. many of the characters are what i deemed to be intentionally one dimensional and highly idiosyncratic, which allows for some imaginatively inventive dialogue and action. the novel flows smoothly yet wildly. and what seems to be most intriguing of the novel is that it works less as a story being told and more as a pseudo-voyeuristic view on how baricco's eccentric characters interact.
