Oct 21, 2016: Unsong is a pun lover’s dream. Lets just get that out of the way. If you don’t like puns, just walk away.
Still here? Good. Many of the puns in question relate to the Bible, and kaballah. You don’t have to know anything about kaballah, but some of the jokes make more sense if you do. The story has several seperate plot lines all in motion, and is slowly weaving them together. There are also regular extra bits and pieces, news items, stories, ect, that add to the overall feel. The sheep DEPTH of story is amazing. The story has magic, technology, adventure, espionage, a touch of romance, and a sentient computer. The dialouge is crisp but each character has a nice unique voice. The prose is well written. I have gotten lost in a chapter to the point of forgeting where I was for a minute, always the sign of a good story.
Unsong. Sing it!
