    Pink & Fuzzy

    Posted by Bookmason, 6 years ago

    Ninjas, the end of the world, love, comedy, adventure, what more can one ask for

    I picked this up in the store because the PINK FUZZY cover grabbed my attention. This is Nick Harkaway's first novel and I generally give a new writer the first 4 or 5 pages in the bookstore to decide whether I will buy their book or not.

    I liked it enough last fall to pick it up, wasn't sure why as little of the actual tale is told at the start, I just liked the feel. Finally made it to top of my TBR pile a week ago and should have been there right after I bought it.

    I compare this a little to the Sci Fi tined tales written by Jonathan Lethem, but only because both are brilliantly written and compelling. Gone Away World exceeds on every level. The story surprises you with plot twists you didn't see coming, but that make perfect sense in the world created by Harkaway.

    It is at times a coming of age story, a comedy, a tragedy and a martial arts primer. Harkaway appears to have melded everything he loves seamlessly into a whole; ninjas and Mad Max meet in a tale of love and redemption.

    Highly recommended to anyone looking for something completely unexpected.
