The Mirage - Matt Ruff This novel was...bizarre. I thought the premise sounded extremely interesting which is why I checked it out from the library, but the execution fell flat. It's not that the writing was bad (I thought it was actually quite good, actually, which is why I kept reading even after I realized I wasn't interested in the story that much), but more how Ruff expanded on his original concept overall.

It might be an enjoyable book for people that are into alternate history novels or a particular magical realism, but even if you are interested, I wouldn't make it a priority.
