Earthlings [book]

 Earthlings [book]

I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO THINK ABOUT THIS ONE. THE PACING IS AWFUL WEIRD ON THIS. IT STARTS OUT AS A FAIRLY HEAVY STORY OF A YOUNG GIRL SUFFERING MOLESTATION AND ABUSE AND HER ESCAPE TO FANTASY, THEN THE MIDDLE OF THE STORY IS COMMENTARY ON SOCIETY AND THE DEMAND PEOPLE HAVE CHILDREN AND THE MAIN CHARACTOR OPTING OUT BUT STILL THROUGH THE LENS OF HER MENTAL DISTORTIONS. THEN LIKE, THE VERY LAST PART JUST VERY RAPIDLY GOES OFF THE RAILS INTO BEING SOMETHING VERY JUNJI ITO LOGIC. IT'S CHILLING AND WELL WRITTEN, BUT COME ON, I DON'T KNOW. IT'S A VERY CREEPY PASTA STYLE OF WRITING.  LIKE IT JUST DIDN'T FEEL LIKE A PAYOFF TO ANYTHING BEYOND THE VAUGEST "TRAUMA MAKES YOU INHUMAN AND ALIEN SO ESCAPISM IS DOING SOMETHING TABOO". I DIDN'T HATE IT BUT EHHHHH. 

PS. I AM AGAIN STREACHING CATAGORIES TO PUT THIS IN "STORY SET IN A PLACE THAT DOESN'T EXIST' BECAUSE AS FAR AS I CAN TELL THE TOWN IS FICTIONAL BUT ALSO IT'S SET IN AKAISHINA IN THE AKAISHINA MOUNTAINS IN JAPAN, WHICH AREN'T REAL BUT SEEM TO BE ALMOST EXACTLY THE SAME WORD AS AKAISHI MOUNTAINS, SO I'M REALLY NOT SURE THAT THAT ISN'T JUST A TRANSLATION QUIRK WHERE THEY JUST MASHED A WORD ENDING INTO BEING A TOWN NAME.  STILL COUNTS THOUGH!
