Operation [ePub]

by Henry Shel

I received this book through goodreads first reads.

This book was awful. Never before have I seen something that so wonderfully captures the mentality of a sexist pig "nice guy" with delusions of depth. If the narrator was a teenager or even in his early twenties I could read it as satire of youthful folly and ignorance but it reminded me constantly that he was in his 30s and divorced, which means he had before this story already put some woman through the hell that would be living with someone so incapable of viewing women as actual people instead of pieces in constructed narrative, yet he didn't learn from that at all.

On top of that the hip-hop poetry was terrible and the comic jokes so basic and casual that if a woman made them the narrator would probably dismiss them as a fake geek girl.
