but we are not men
I forgot to review this book when I actually read it a few months ago. Whoops.
Anyway - I found this book very odd, fairly charming and extremely poignant. It had that feeling of strangeness just for the point of strangeness, if that makes any sense. Like, it’s all very simplistic but quirky in a really intentional way, and somehow that makes it feel like it all means a lot. 
I got the same feeling when reading Audrey Niffenneger’s Her Fearful Symmetry. Even now a bit while reading Life of Pi. I’m not 100% sure that I love it, but it’s an interesting style.
