Review of 'Number9Dream' on 'Goodreads'

3 stars

Probably my least favorite Mitchell so far. There are bits I like, but overall it's confusing. When it's good, it's really good, but some chapters just go on forever. Each chapter kinda has its own gimmick, like what-ifs, the protagonist sharing his dreams or reading stories.

The end was confusing and not satisfying at all.
