'Warp' is Lev Grossman's first novel, finally seeing print. It's fictional, but has the feel of being somewhat true.
The author's forward is pretty good. He explains how the story came about, and what it was like to revisit it all these years later. It's about a particular time in life. In this case, it is being college aged in the 1990s. The story is kind of a night in the life. There are lots of conversations, geeky inner monologues, and the kind of silly, stupid fun you get into with friends.
It's light on plot and structure, but it's supposed to be. It captures a period of time pretty well. It's also not like the author's other works as far as I can tell. I found it nostalgic and made me think of the time in my life when I was about the same age.
I received a review copy of this ebook from St. Martin's Press and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this ebook.
