After reading Fan Girl, I didn't think this author could write a book better designed to be adored by me. How wrong I was. For fanfiction lovers, this is what we've always been waiting for, and what everyone told us wasn't worth wanting.
It's genre defining because it is a brave and new step into blended fiction genres. And now that this book exists, it seems so obvious that it needed to exist.
I don't know what reading this book is like for "normals" who aren't familiar with the tropes and conventions of quality fanfiction (of which there is much). I can only say so gobsmacked I am that this book exists and it is canon.
Performance was killer, spot on.

Why can't this book go on forever. A perfect narration from Rebecca Lowman. Was perfection.

Serious gender issues, but outstanding performance

Um oh geese. I really wanted to like this book more, but almost every female in it is written as either a intangible creature, force, or sexual object. Rather than a "person". So....that's weird.

wow.... that was really long.

not a bad book, but very slow, and repetitive. Definitely not what I expected in comparison to the first book of His Dark Materials. solid narration.

Must read for everyone with an wothout a gender
