Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor have done it again!
I started listening to the Welcome to Night Vale podcast so I could read the book, and when this one came out, I impatiently waited for my library to get the audiobook so I could listen to it. It took forever, but it was so worth it because these books on audio are amazing. If you enjoy the podcast, I highly recommend listening to these books on audio.
On the surface, this was just a light, fun read, but like Fink’s first book (and like the podcast can be at times) I think it had a deeper meaning that’s worth exploring (and fun to explore in Nightvale). The main character, Nilanjala Sikdar, is a scientist working in Night Vale who relies on facts and logic and the idea that there is a scientific explanation for everything. But she starts to question that worldview when she starts dating Darryl, an acolyte of The Joyous Congregation of the Smiling God.
