The Nix by Nathan Hill


Review: Just read THE NIX by Nathan Hill. It’s brilliant, hilarious and mind-bending… that is, for the first half of the book. After that, it slowly loses its brilliance.

Is it worth reading? Definitely, if only for the first half. It’s Hill’s debut novel, and it’s an amazing achievement for a first-time author.

I expect big things from him in the future. But it’s simply too long. He could have cut it down by 30% and had a perfect novel.

That said, you should read it. It’s timely, especially with the election of Donald Trump. The dialog, internal monologs, and frenetic pace are like drinking a triple expresso and dancing on the tables at Starbucks.

Rating: ★★★
