Let's Pretend This Never Happened: A Mostly True Memoir


Fun book, but the writ­ing style (deranged in­ter­nal mono­logue) is a bit tire­some. More en­joy­able on small dos­es.

How­ev­er, it has some great part­s, like the child­hood sto­ries, and there is a heart­break­ing part in the mid­dle I don't even want to write about.



This is the first time a Miéville book has bored me.

It goes to great lengths about lin­guis­tic­s, which is not some­thing that in­ter­ests me, but al­so, the in­ten­tion­al vague­ness of ev­ery­thing, how
noth­ing is de­scribed, made it hard to read or re­late to.
