SHINE SHINE SHINE is a good read, not a great one.

You could say that some parts are great because they're imaginative and unlike what you've read before. And dialog between characters is funny.

But all the characters and scenery (including home scenery) seem sketchy, almost comic bookish. This sketchiness seems deliberate, a device. But it doesn't work for me, not enough for me to agree with the majority of reviews that insist this book is great.

The prose is beautiful in the excerpt I read. Now I need to read the rest of the book.

What does it mean to be normal? This is the story of two odd children who grew up and fell in love, the way they fit and the way they fell apart, how he became an astronaut lost in space, and she became the perfect wife whose “perfect” wasnt real. A debut of singular power and intelligence, Lydia Netzers Shine Shine Shine is an adventure between worlds, and a stunning novel of love, death, and what it means to be human.
