The Nix by Nathan Hill is not as “unputdownable” as I would have liked. The endless and indepth sidetracking put me off many times as I was just getting into the story or one of the many stories making up the main story.
So it took me a while to finish this novel. The story finally gained a little pace towards the last 150 pages or so. A little too late for a book consisting of 732 pages. It could have done with 250 or so less pages and much more focus and pace. A nice story that would have been nicer had it been a lot shorter.
