In need of a quick read between edits for Deprogrammed, I stumbled upon Stupid Perfect World. I wasn't entirely sure what to expect as I'd never read anything by Scott Westerfeld, but I really ended up enjoying it.
Telling a story in fifty-five pages isn't easy, yet Westerfeld does it no problem. I found myself lost inside of this world that he'd created - it was unique and exciting, especially as the story progressed.
The only reason I am giving this novella four stars is because I wanted more. The ending, while showcasing wonderful character development, wasn't as satisfying as I would have liked it to have been. It just kind of seemed to end. If Westerfeld decides to revisit this world with a full length novel, I will definitely be checking it out.
