Edinburgh [book]

 Edinburgh [book]

THIS IS EXTREMELY WELL WRITTEN, IT'S ALSO A PRETTY HARD READ BECAUSE IT'S GOT SOME TRULY HEAVY SUBJECT MATTER. SO I'M NOT GOING TO GOOF ON A REALLY SERIOUS STORY. GOING TO FOCUS ON ONLY ONE ELEMENT: THIS IS THE MOST SET IN MAINE BOOK EVER WRITTEN AND IT WAS MAKING ME INSANE. EVERY SINGLE POSSIBLE THING IN THIS BOOK HAS TO BE LOCATED TO A SPECIFIC PLACE IN MAINE. YOU MIGHT THINK THAT IS HOW BOOKS WORK AND HAVING A SETTING WORKS BUT IT'S SO MUCH BEYOND THAT. IT'S NOT JUST CONVERSATIONS HAPPENING AND THEM ALWAYS MAKING SURE TO LIST EXACTLY WHAT CORNER AND STREET IN SOUTH PORTLAND IT'S HAPPENING ON IT'S ALSO SOMEONE USING A BUG NET TRAP AND LATER WRITING A NOTE ON THE RECEIPT SO YOU KNOW THEY BOUGHT THE BUG NET IN AUGUSTA OR SOMEONE SEEING A ROCK AND A TEACHER CHIMING IN THAT A GLACIER HAS CARRIED THAT ROCK FROM ELLSWORTH. IT DIDN'T EVEN SEEM TO HAVE ANY SPECIFIC THEMATIC OR SYMBOLIC REASON TO IT, EVERY SINGLE THING AND EVENT AND OBJECT SEEMED TO JUST HAVE TO HAVE SOME REASON TO MENTION WHAT PART OF MAINE IT WAS FROM. 

PS. "MAINE, MAINE IS OK, MANY FAT PEOPLE BUT OKAY"
