by Andrew Sean Greer
“The Impossible Lives of Greta Wells: A Novel” is a wonderful, mesmerizing and highly entertaining book. Andrew Sean Greer is the author of this beautiful novel. The author has great magic of entertaining readers with great storytelling skills. One of those incredibly rare stories that really go there when all hell breaks loose, the stakes getting higher and higher and higher until the reader feels out of control like you’re being drawn along by a narrative-equivalent of a runaway steam engine that’s not only on fire but running out of track.
And then, by some miracle, it sticks the landing and you are just shaking your head through the last few pages, in disbelief over what you just read. In short, it is one of those books that isn’t just a sci-fi thriller, but it’s such a realistic thriller that is eerily scary.
