This wasn't the best book I've ever read, but it certainly wasn't the worst either! I would recommend it to people who are looking for a bit of a zany, kooky thriller that doesn't want to take themselves too seriously. This book begins with the explosion of Albert Snaedeker on the operating table during a routine surgery. Yes. You read that correctly. After said explosion, Albert's cousin, publisher of Angle magazine, assigns his reporter Owen Berk, to investigate. This is where things begin to get even weirder. Somehow, Berk is able to transform everyone into characters in a literary fiction novel, and he must then figure out what is real and what is not real, especially his growing romantic feelings. Whew! What a wild ride!
