Science Fiction. SCIENCE FICTION. SCIENCE FICTION. SCIENCE FICTION. There. Definitely worth reading, science fiction fans. Don't be put off by fear of the worst and most indulgent of magic realism*. This is a creepy, fascinating book. The reader will be way ahead of the narrator pretty quickly but that won't undermine the experience. *Not that magic realism is bad, just that bad anything is bad and bad magic realism (ie SFF for non-SFF readers) is quite tedious.
