Review: The Nix

The Nix The Nix by Nathan Hill
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

How does one summarize "The Nix" in a short paragraph? I don't know that it's possible. Hill's tale is about so many things: politics, online gaming, relationships, social media, resistance...and the list goes on. Ultimately, Samuel Andresen-Anderson is the heart of this epic story. Samuel, a washed-up writer and disgruntled college professor, finds his life turned upside down when his mother, who walked out of his life twenty years earlier, becomes a viral news sensation.

Memories, flashbacks, and a zany cast of secondary characters proceed to unearth a past that has haunted Samuel for decades.
