About book: I picked up this book about a year ago, read the first few chapters and abandoned it. I just picked it up again, gritted my way through the first 14 chapters and devoured the book in two days. I couldn't put it down. It tells a a tale of twisted humor and tragedy, with everything you dream of happening on an insane-one of a kind road trip through the mind and across the south. It explores themes that are untouched in the world of literature and makes you ask a few questions yourself about what, exactly, is life. In a giant departure from her Gemma Doyle historical fiction trilogy, Bray’s latest offering is an unforgettable, nearly indefinable fantasy adventure, as immense and sprawling as Cervantes’ Don Quixote, on which it’s based… Here the hero is Cameron, a 16-year-old C-plus-average slacker who likens himself to driftwood, but he suddenly becomes the center of attention after he is diagnosed with Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, the human variant of mad cow disease. In the hospital, he meets Dulcie, an alluring angel clad in fishnet stockings and combat boots, who presents him with a heroic quest to rescue the planet from an otherworldly, evil force. Guided by random signs and accompanied by a teen dwarf named Gonzo, Cameron sets off on a wild road trip across the U.S. to save the world, and perhaps his own life.

The only book that has made me want to eat bad meat and die. I say that in the best way possible.

Like all her books, it drags and Menderes, always leaving me unsatisfied.
