The Order of Odd-Fish
02/25/2009 § 2 Comments
I had a whole post written up about The Order of Odd-Fish but then I realized something.
This book isn’t forgotten or old. It came out very recently. And just because it sort of falls in line with what I’m trying to write about on this blog, doesn’t mean it actually fits with the theme.
So I deleted my post…
But since I liked it and the writer James Kennedy is from Chicago I decided I’d at least mention it.
The book is not without it’s flaws but it is a fine read and unique in lots of ways that are not simply odd but also surprising and fresh. Things aren’t just weird for weird’s sake. They all fit together in the weird salad that Kennedy has tossed together, or spun…however you prefer salads made.
So, if you are into things like kids saving the world, flying ostriches, giant fish, pranksters, and Akira style endings, go read it.
