This novel blew my mind. I loved it. I expected competence from Highland's debut novel, I assumed he could write well enough, but this novel didn't seem to be my thing; I couldn't tell where the story would lead or how it would manifest any depth, as these things go dangerously unadvertised in the book's description. In fact, the story alone is fantastic. Unexpected, interesting and moving, it covers all the points of a high-quality novel. Above that, the narrator is among the best I've read. Drew Ballard is a great character, illustrated with precision. He is astute, funny and clever, and the narrative is incredible - startling in its showmanship. From each well-constructed sentence to the next, the word-trickery strokes unloved parts of the modern word-nerd brain. It's through his signature dazzle-prose that Highland creates a master smart-ass of a protagonist. Drew Ballard is assuredly going to Hell, but like a wayward older brother, we secretly idolize him. This book satisfies on so many levels, I'd recommend it to nearly anyone.
