I really am in awe of this pace, Jeff. I was similarly perplexed by the Saunders book and feeling like I read it too quickly. But I was also feeling like it was a bit of preaching to the converted. This might be one you save for a bedtime story for the kid with some choice emendations.


The fact that Saunders' worlds are so amusing and entertaining and logical in a sense that one can't quite identify is what makes him sui generis in my book. I think it helps to kind of just plunge into Saunders and go along for the ride and then read him a second time to pick up more of the nuances. There really hasn't been a worldbuilder of his caliber to come along in contemporary fiction for a long time.
