This is the first "novel" I have read that was written in parts limited to 140 characters. I had expected that following the "story" might be difficult. Surprisingly, I found just the opposite. It read like gossip, which, I believe, was probably at least part of the intent. The characters of the story were not difficult to follow. If I set the book down for a while, it was easy to pick up again and continue on.
Although the author might disagree, except for the fact this story takes place over three months, it could actually be about the goings on of virtually any professional retreat or conference or even a field school. It brought back memories of eight hot weeks camping out in western Oklahoma doing oral histories; an archaeological experience in Arizona; and multiple experiences - very intense - writing questions for a professional licensing exam, always put up in the best hotel and fed the best food a sophisticated city had to offer.
I certainly was not expecting all of those memories to bubble up from a Twitter novel. But, this is a story about people, their work, and their interaction with others when they are doing that work outside of their usual workplace and in a type of isolation with others. And, it "works" very well as a twitter novel.
