This book is rare for so many reasons. First of all, rarely does a book come along that has something for everyone. Secondly, it is rare that a book of this length would read so incredibly quickly. I loved each and every character in this book, including the absolutely horrible ones. Nathan Hill has a great grasp of, well, everything. Through the many different methods of storytelling (including a chapter that was all one long sentence, which I didn’t realize until many pages in), I found myself feeling the full range of emotions. I would be laughing one moment and crying the next.
The Nix was a favorite of our staff. In fact, we chose it as our staff pick of 2016.
