A Visit from the Goon Squad

Title: A Visit from the Goon Squad
Author: Jennifer Egan
ISBN: 978-0-307-47747-7
Why Read?: Book Club
Challenges: 100 Books in a Year

Thoughts: A Visit from the Goon Squad is definitely unique. It is closer to a short story collection of interconnected tales than a novel. Each of the thirteen chapters follows a different protagonist and is written is a different style. The three chapters that stood out the most to me are "X's and O's", "Great Rock and Roll Pauses", and "Pure Language". The rest were rather meh.
Rating: 3 stars
