Welcome to Night Vale
Welcome to Night Vale | Joseph Fink, Jeffrey Cranor
Praise for Welcome to Night ValeThis is the novel of your dreams. . . . A friendly (but terrifying) and comic (but dark) and glittering (but bleak) story of misfit family life that unfolds along the side streets, back alleys, and spring-loaded trapdoors of the small town home youll realize youve always missed living in.Glen David Gold, author of Carter Beats the Devil and SunnysideThose of us who have gotten to know Night Vale through Cecil Palmers biweekly radio broadcasts can finally see what its like to actually live there. It is as weird and surreal as I hoped it would be, and a surprisingly existential meditation on the nature of time, reality, and the Glow Cloud that watches over us.Wil WheatonTake Conans Hyboria, teleport it to the American Southwest, dress all the warriors in business casual and hide their swords under the floorboards thats Night Vale: absurd, magical, wholly engrossing, and always harboring some hidden menace.John Darnielle, author of Wolf in White VanIve been a fan of Welcome to Night Vale for years, and in that time writers Jeffrey Cranor and Joseph Fink have delighted me with stories that are clever, twisted, beautiful, strange, wonderful, and sweet. This book does all of that and so much more. Its even better than Id hoped. I think this might be the best book Ive read in years.Patrick Rothfuss, author of The Name of the WindThis small town full of hooded figures, glowing clouds, cryptically terrifying public policies, and flickering realities quickly feels more like home than home. . . . There is nothing like Night Vale, in the best possible way.Maureen Johnson, author of 13 Little Blue Envelopes and The Name of the StarTheyve done the unthinkable: merged the high weirdness and intense drama of Night Vale to the pages of a novel that is even weirder, even more intense than the podcast.Cory Doctorow, author of Little Brother and coeditor of Boing Boing

Just found out about the postcast at the beginning of the year and breathed it in right away.
Starting the novel today, I was already laughing at every second paragraph of the first chapter.

Adressing the reader: “You are leaving this story now. You were only an example, and its probably safer for you not to be in this story anyway.”

53/150 Night Vale isn't for everyone, the unrelenting surreal weirdness can get wearing at times. This novel doesn't always make logical sense, but it does follow Night Vale's own brand of internal logic. If you like the podcasts, I recommend the book. 4 ⭐⭐⭐⭐

TieDyeDude Is Night Vale still going? I stopped somewhere between episode100-125 I think. They started doing too many "event" specials, and I wasn't loving the books. 5mo

This seems like a book I would enjoy. But well . . . as my rating suggests, I did not enjoy it at all. Even though I technically finished it, I admit I skimmed 85% of it.

wanderinglynn @PuddleJumper I never listened to the podcast. But in reading other reviews, it seemed like of those who did listen to the podcast, it was about 50-50 whether they liked the book. 8mo
wanderinglynn @peanutnine yes, I can see how this would‘ve been better in audio. It was definitely written more like a script. 8mo
wanderinglynn @BethM yes it‘s weird, but not in the fun Douglas Adams or Terry Pratchett way. And just took too much effort to read. (edited) 8mo
TieDyeDude Yeah, I was a faithful listener of the podcast for about 100 episodes. Haven't really enjoyed the books and gave up on the podcast 🤷 8mo

This was fun, but I suspect I would have liked it more if I was a regular listener of the podcast - I have listened to like 15-20 episodes but am not a die-hard. Anyway the tone and jokes are similar, so if you like the podcast you will probably like this.

The town of Night Vale is full of abnormalities, especially when Jackie Fierro goes missing and everyone seems to have forgotten about her, except Diana Crayton. This book follows the lives of these two ladies and goes through the journey of how are they going to reunite. For the most part, I enjoyed this book however at times it was very hard to comprehend.

Lola.DigoutFord One of the themes in this novel is the idea of friendship and how far you will go for them. This can be seen from the lengths Diana will go to save Jackie. I would really only recommend it to those who listen to the podcast because it is so bizarre that you would not understand it otherwise. I give it a 7/10. 1y
MissYaremcio Thanks for the review Lola! This one was POV but you did a great job with the theme! 4/6 1y

The strange happenings that loom over #NightVale are distracting me through my cold ?

Located in a nameless desert somewhere in the great American Southwest, Night Vale is a small town where ghosts, angels, aliens, and government conspiracies are all commonplace parts of everyday life. It is here that the lives of two women, with two mysteries, will converge.

Why am i holding a piece of paper with "KING CITY" written on it?

I picked this for #relatedtoapodcast despite having never listened to the podcast. It's not terrible, but I thought it was kind of boring. It's like sci-fi for people who have never read or heard of sci-fi. Too much focus on 'this is funny because it's weird' when they could have just set up a weird world and told a great story. Here, the weirdness gets boring and the story is lackluster and goes nowhere. Guess it's just not for me! 🤷‍♀️

Sarz And that also means that I have finished my winter picks for #booked2019. On the last day of winter! 3y
Clare-Dragonfly The funny thing to me is, they HAVE set up a weird world and told a great story! Several of them in the podcast! But the books just don‘t have any of the magic. 3y

2. No long weekend here, but it is Father's Day so catching up with family tomorrow will be nice
3. I go for the sweet stuff - butterscotch, toffee, cookies and cream, etc

This book was weird is the best way. I recommend listening to the podcast before starting the book ( even if it‘s just 1 ep) so you can get a feel of what it‘s going to be like. The way I word it is nightvale is a town where every conspiracy theory exists and the citizens don‘t really think anything of it. I recommend using the audiobook as the authors originally wrote podcasts and I found i enjoyed it more when I listened to it. Highly recommend!

I love this podcast and I really enjoyed the book. I was super excited to find the audiobook on Libby. I really wanted to listen to the audiobook because it's read by who else, but the Voice of Night Vale. Libby also has the second book, but not as an audiobook.
The good news is I've recently moved to a new location, so maybe the new library will have it. If not I will settle for reading it, but probably still in Cecil's voice.

Hi #lmpbc #GroupW reading buds! Here‘s a stack of choices I was considering. Let me know what you think!!

BethM I‘ve tried to get through Nightvale 3 times and haven‘t been able to. I‘d give it a shot if that‘s what everyone else wanted. My pick would be Altered Carbon but good choices! (edited) 3y
SarahHarts_books I read Gold Fame Citrus and hated it. I had the hardest time getting through it. The actual story line would've been ok, but there were just pages and pages on nonsense. I don't know, maybe you'll have an easier time reading it. But I have been wanting to read Vox that looks good! 3y

Book 40 of the year, finished May 21, audio.

Im rounding up, but this was somewhere between a pick and a so-so. I really enjoy the podcast and it was fun to get more detail about individual characters than you get with the show, but I didn't like it quite as much as I thought I would.

Plot wise, it solves the mystery of The Man in the Tan Jacket with the Deer Skin Breifcase.

I'm (sadly) not very good with audiobooks/ podcasts, because I tend to zone out completely after some time, but I manage to listen to an episode of Welcome to Night Vale every once in a while. Still lagging behind by about five years, but I'm slowly making process. All hail the Glow Cloud!

WhatWouldJaneDo I love podcasts when I'm doing certain repetitive activities, but some work better than others for me. I tend to like listening to people having a conversation (or multiple actors in fiction, or at least someone good with voices) or I tune out more. I'm trying out audiobooks more, figure it'll be similar and some genres/narrators won't be for me. 3y
scripturient-ink @WhatWouldJaneDo I wish I could listen to more podcasts, when I manage to actually pay attention, I do quite like them! It's just really exhausting for me, so I need to be in the right mood. I guess I'm just more of a visual person :D Any podcasts that you thought were easy to listen to? 3y
WhatWouldJaneDo @scripturient-ink for fictional ones, I liked The Bright Sessions and Alice Isn't Dead a lot. I'm a fan of a lot of Wondery's shows for long form true crime (Dirty John, Dr. Death, and To Live and Die in LA are all really good). I usually listen while I'm reviewing stuff at work so my eyes are doing one thing that doesn't need a ton of brain power and then my mind doesn't wander (cleaning is also good for this combo). 3y
scripturient-ink @WhatWouldJaneDo Oh yes, I've been wanting to give Alice Isn't Dead a try. The Bright Sessions sound interesting too, thanks! Maybe I'll try listening to podcasts while jogging, that's definitely a no-brainer :D 3y
WhatWouldJaneDo @scripturient-ink that's a great idea! I'd definitely have trouble paying attention if I was just sitting and listening so I think finding the right activity pairing makes a big difference. Hope you find some that work for you, there's a lot of great stuff out there! 3y

WTF am I listening to?! I just can‘t do it anymore. I know this is an #unpopularopinion but 🤷🏻‍♀️. I will just have to choose another book for the #relatedtoapodcast prompt for #booked2019.

BridgetteM @Reggie Thank you so much for the recommendation! I will check it out. :) 4y

This is my first read as part of my goal to read 12 book I already own this year. I put it off for a super long time because even though I love the podcast, I wasn't sure it would work as a book.

Fortunately, it works great as a book. The story is weird and fun and a little unsettling in all the best ways. I'm glad I finally read it after leaving it on my shelf for too long.

This book was as weird and wonderful as the podcast. Read if you like the podcast or just want a surreal experience. Though one of the best parts of the podcast (other than the odd stories) is Cecil Baldwin. He also performs the audiobook. Not sure I would have enjoyed it as much just reading the text. And be warned - you will forever think differently about plastic pink flamingos and librarians!

Cinfhen I‘m intrigued by this book but I feel like I need to listen to the podcast first! That seems to be the Littens consensus 😜 4y
LiterRohde @Cinfhen I think it could go either way. I listen to the podcast and I‘m still not sure I get what I just read. Yes, the podcast introduces you to characters and settings and internal workings of the town so it is familiar to you when you read the book, but it is still just plain weird. That you must be ready for either way. I guess one advantage of the podcast is it‘s short-form, so you don‘t have to invest much time to see if you like the style. 4y

This book was SO weird, and SO not my usual genre. (Lots Of sci-fi and fantasy elements) but it was seriously so much fun. I laughed out loud at so many parts. I guess I didn‘t read the summary very well when I picked it for #booked2019 Book related to a podcast, but I am glad that I picked it. I might even checkout the podcast sometime (except that will cut into my audiobook time, lol.)

Cinfhen Glad it ended up a pick 😊 4y
