Someone Comes to Town, Someone Leaves Town

Someone Comes to Town, Someone Leaves Town by Cory Doctorow is a quirky little book about an affable serial entrepreneur named Alan. If you think you have an odd family you haven't met Alan's. His father is a mountain and his mother a washing machine. Literally. Alan was doing just fine until he discovers something isn't quite right with his next door neighbour, who's missing her wings, and he receives a visit from his brothers, a set of Russian nesting dolls, who are disappearing one-by-one. Doctorow's prose reads effortlessly so even though aspects of the story might seem strange the book flows smoothly to its conclusion. It's is a fun and imaginative read.
