A review by sydapel
Disorientation, by Elaine Hsieh Chou

dark funny mysterious reflective slow-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? A mix
  • Strong character development? Yes
  • Loveable characters? It's complicated
  • Diverse cast of characters? Yes
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? Yes


Acerbically witty, satirical and insightful, this book made me think more than most books I've read this year about activism, academia and colonialism (which is easy when you read mostly romance but my point still stands). It's an absolutely stunning debut and I wholeheartedly recommend it.
