    Bloody hell. The book started out feeling tight and claustrophobic, cycling through the perspectives of a group of people involved in an Auckland fashion label preparing for a photo shoot over the course of the evening. It feels in part like a sharply observed work of part satire, part social realism, but you can feel something bigger, and darker, and angrier, waiting beneath the surface. Thene last third of the book happens. It’s something that should be a surprise, but it’s simultaneously [...]

    It is so hard to write much about this without it being a spoiler. I heard a review on the radio where they described the beginning of the book as claustrophobic - I knew the beginning had felt uncomfortable and I couldn't figure out why but that's a good word for it. You get so invested in the detail of all that is going on. By the time you get to the end of the book - well, being vague to avoid spoilers, you'll feel quite differently.

    What I like most is the examination of generational culture. Jesus, that sounds boring. But it's fascinating. How much of your personality is determined by the period you emerged out of? Pip Adam's Gen Xers and Millennials are no easy-bake cutouts or straw folk to be torn down. They are nuanced and recognisable. The story is fun, that should be said. It's a horror novel in a way.

    An unsettling read, stressful, tense, an existential claustrophobia pressing in on all sides. How do you break out into meaning? Break free from the time-wasting cares? If you are alive in 2017, you need not be a follower of fashion to sense all the tension these characters feel.Too disorienting to give five stars straight off the bat, but knowing me, I'll talk about it for years.

    Enjoyed, but the ending was seriously weird and didn’t make any sense

    Greatly redeemed by the saga of Elodie.
