"Write what you know," they say, and there's something delightful about a new writer writing about an aspiring writer at a writers' workshop -- especially when he's an especially unpromising aspiring writer. (Although, spoiler alert, it turns out there's a lot of bad writing going on at this workshop.)
The who-done-it part isn't really too hard to guess, but the joy is watching the characters unfold into each other. While I wouldn't quite describe this as a guilty pleasure, it's a very pleasant, quick, fun, and engrossing read.
This is the second book of Ms Sabbag that I have really enjoyed. Such a wonderful prose artist.
I found each character unique and complex. Rex himself is a lot of fun. He makes the worst decisions and doesn't have much focus but you cannot help but root for him. This was a good, fun mystery. There are no major plot twists or surprises, but it was a highly enjoyable read. I would suggest this to anyone who enjoys murder mysteries.
