Where do I start with this? For years, I've been looking for a book that was even a bit as amazing as Kathe Koja's The Cipher, and I've finally found it. Negative Space is a bleak mindfuck that will leave your head reeling long after you finish it.
I freaking loved the short point of views from the different characters. Now I wish more books did short "chapters" like this. I found myself speed reading, just so I could get more of the book inside my head faster. I wanted to know everything about the characters and weirdly enough I liked all of them. I know people said in their reviews that they were unlikeable, but I didn't think so. Were they highly disturbed, drug-addicted teenagers with no real goal in life? Yes. But that didn't make their journeys any less significant.
I wish I could give this book more than 5 stars, but I'm fresh out of WHORL and this is the only plane I can currently exist in.
