I have so many questions! Especially in that last chapter. I want to know what happens next!
What was great: Without going into too much detail and spoiling a lot of the plot, I can say that there are "monsters" in the book that serve as very interesting characters and plot devices. The book reads like a wild mash-up of Neon Genesis: Evangelion and Shadowrun. There are quite disturbing themes of slavery and drug use that permeate the book, so I would not recommend this book for young readers, but these themes get handled adeptly and with interesting insights (the closest comparison I ended up making with... uh... the "substance" that is the main drug of reference, would be Adderall, but that was my interpretation). Scenic description was given enough of a spin that I did not feel like I was reading pulp fiction. There's a lot more story here, and I hope that Mr. Neiderriter continues this story.
What was not so great: Punctuation and spelling is the nemesis of many self-published authors. It did not get to the point where I could not understand what was going on, but I tended to find a minor mistake every couple pages or so. If you are a perfectionist (or an editor), this may be a mild hindrance. Normally it is for me, but the story was engaging enough, and the characters and central conceit interesting enough, that it stopped being a problem for me.
I would also note that "The Mangrove Suite" seems a bit short for the story that the writer intended to tell. The ending seemed a little rushed. The good news is that this is solvable, with companion books! So I look forward to reading Clean: Book Two. I'd also like to read about the backstory behind this world, as something reality-altering for all the humans on the planet happened in its recent history (again, I won't spoil this, but it's one of the more interesting setups present in the novel).
Takeaway: If you like new and interesting ideas from new authors, you like sci-fi and fantasy, and you don't mind the occasional typo or punctuation error, then I recommend you buy this immediately. It took me a flight and a half (about 4 hours) to read through this, and I'm a decently fast reader - so if you want something to read the next time you ride the bus, or take a flight, or wait at the DMV, definitely give this a try!
