This book isn't one you can, or should, read quickly. It has to marinate in your mind as you slowly build up a tolerance to it, all the while questioning whether you can even stomach it or figure out what the hell is going on. With a non-linear, nested narration, you'll be frustrated until you realize how genius it all is when it starts making sense. The worldbuilding is unparalleled, and the story, setting, and characters are all unique. Badass.
