My Review of He Who Shall Remain Shameless
He Who Shall Remain Shameless is probably the oddest thing I read in 2015. Within the first couple vignettes I was scratching my head and wondering what, exactly, I’d gotten myself into. Mind you, this isn’t a bad book at all. Its just different enough that I was never quite sure if I liked it or not. The absurdity and grimness that quite often went hand in hand both appealed to, and repulsed me.
In my mind, this is definitely a niche book. If you favor the absurd, and finding out random stuff about people you’ve probably never heard of, you’ll love it. If you fall outside of that niche, you’re either going to hate it, or be reading it in bemused confusion as delusion, facts, and the internet weave in and out of the various vignettes.
I can’t say I’d highly recommend it, but I will say its not badly written. Its on Kindle Unlimited, so if you’re a member of that, go ahead and give it a try if absurdist writing is your thing. Otherwise, definitely read the reviews first, and approach with caution.
