This Semi-Perfect Universe by William Todd Seabrook
This Semi-Perfect Universe

Thereader, October 19, 2012

I thought the novel was quite interesting. I am the type of person that looks for deeper meaning in everything that I read, so this text was quite relaxing. I don't mean that it was lacking in meaning, but I do mean that the complexity of the storyline gives the reader, or in this case the interpreter, creative license. The short novel seemed like a nihilist's paradise. That being said, the subtle jabs at religion were most comical. There were moments where I was confused and others where I was impressed. The only way to really experience the novel is to delve into the complex universe itself(I mean that literally), sort through dissolution of reality, and walk away.
