On the other hand, as a reader, there were times it was difficult to figure out how all of these different elements worked together. (Ok, I admit that it made me a little crazy because I wanted ANSWERS right now!) It's a complex story line where we, along with the main characters, question the lines between reality and fiction.This wasn't an easy, cozy ride but I knew it was good because all through the book I really wanted to know what happened next. I have read this authors other works so I trusted him to deliver and he certainly did. I don't want to spoil the ending so I can't give any details but, wow, I did not see that coming. It definitely made me think.
I wish I could describe this to you better. It's one of the most creative works of fiction (Unfiction, that is) that I've read and I recommend it to anyone who likes to be surprised. This is not your normal wall in the park. It is a thought provoking, imaginative story that might just drive you crazy while you try to figure it out.
For those of you who want a little more substance..well, let's dive into this fantastic novel.
Unfiction proves why I always dance with impatience for the next novel from Gene Doucette. Unfiction is a novel from a fiction writer about a fiction writer who writes fiction for a fiction writers group that he never finishes and can't quite understand when things in his life start to resemble the fiction stories he wrote... Oh, and there are dragons and aliens. You know fictional things, but in real life. I'm sure there's a better way to say that (see book's blurb) but the result is a great novel that challenges how much you pay attention to details. I wasn't idolizing in the tldr review above when I say the author channels his inner Steven Moffat (writer for Doctor Who, Sherlock, etc for those of you who don't know "the silence will fall" seven year payoff) with clever details that both the author, the internal author, and probably the reader briefs through and then those details come back and have huge impacts later in the novel. Like the importance of almost everyone's name and a rock that come back and literally destroy plots and characters.
To sum up, this is a fun book that challenges the reader with detail retention and witty inner dialogue reflection and makes you question what is reality in this world of Unfiction. I want to say more but I don't want to spoil the book too much. The ending wraps up many things nicely but also in a way that makes you wish there was a sequel already to continue the adventure. Buy the book. Gene Doucette's books are always worth it.
