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

  • Author: Jenny Lawson

  • Review:

    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.

  • Review:

    I didn't know there were other New Crobuzon books other than Perdido Street Station, which I really enjoyed, so this was a very pleasant surprise.

    I didn't like it *quite* as much as Perdido Street Station, but that's just because I liked that other one so much.

    Gripping world building, nice plot, too. The characters are maybe a little too on the "misterious stranger" style, but hey, it's China Mieville so that was to be expected.

    I read this by recommendation of my friend Nico César and... it's so much fun even the spanish slang didn't bother me.

    From now on, egg cartons will never be the same thing for me.
