Broom of the System is a good starter novel from Wallace.
He can write, that's for sure, but none of the characters did anything or went anywhere in the story or seemed believable, likable or relatable in any way.
The book has other glimmers of joy in it, no doubt, but all in all I just didn't want to read it very much.
My favorite book of all time - Audible edition!
I listen to it once a year like some people watch their favorite movie every year.
Funny, clever, fast, intriguing with a challenging ending that took me 2 readings to begin to understand. Parts of this book crept into my dreams. Definitely worth a read!Published 1 month ago by Kensingtonian
