Silently and Very Fast - Catherynne M. Valente

I'm technically finished with this, but I have no idea how to rate it and no time to write a full review. I think I'll wait until after my vacation and then reread it, so I have time to think about it and unpack it a bit more.

 

I originally bought this (or tried to buy it) so that I could have it as a quick read for my flight. Um, bad idea. This may be relatively short, but it's not a quick read. The writing is lyrical and dense, which is something that usually goes over very badly with me but mostly worked for me here. There are some things I still don't understand, but I'm hoping that my planned reread will help.
