Format: Paperback
Very necessary for any Geek Lover. It's like an autobiography, with the most awesome strange plot lines twisted right in. Highly sexual, disturbing, intense. And it's all stream of consciousness, and it is so good. I personally like it a whole lot more than I like Truck, and it clearly belongs to a different genre than Geek. It's intense. In honor of my great aunt Eva, I give it three enthusiastic thumbs up.

Being a big fan of Geek Love, I was happy to find Attic. I wasn't sure what to expect, and what I found was a mess of prose. You are inside the mind of a crazy woman who finds herself in strange places and situations. You are given a first hand view of her thought process -- run-on sentences, vivid imagery, and confusion. I thoroughly enjoyed the ride. After reading this book, I felt insane myself. Not recommended for the mentally unstable.

Format: Paperback
Geek Love is one of my favorite books ever, but this novel seemed like a Kerouac-style ramble without a plot, compelling characterization, beginning or ending. Underwater misery with no subtlety or explanation.

bought attic because I'm a fan of geek love / dunn's earlier work, I loved it, easily got swirled into jail right along with the protagonist - didn't understand what was happening until it was 2 late / it was honest & jarring

As Geek Love is one of my all-time favorites, I purchased Attic with high hopes. I was highly disappointed; it has some interesting passages, and some good character portraits, but it was overall a disjointed, self-indulging mess. Don't bother; read Geek Love again instead.
