I normally avoid revealing plot spoilers on principle – I like readers to be able to experience the book at their own pace. But I made an exception for Swamplandia! today. The book missed the mark so badly, in my opinion, that I wrote two versions of my review: one with spoilers and one without. That was the only way to fully explain my true feelings on the book and why it bothered me so much.
So, feel free to read one or both of those reviews – they’re clearly labelled if you avoid spoilers.
