Giant Days, Volume 5: 08/19/17

Giant Days, Volume 5  by John Allison

Giant Days, Volume 5 by John Allison brings the first year of university to a close. Daisy, Esther, and Susan are taking on summer at full force. Their beloved wreck of a dorm is slated for demolition, to put in luxury dorms. All in all it's weird times.

I happened to read this volume in the same week that I read Cadillac Couches by Sophie B. Watson and I must admit that the two stories have merged in my head — especially the scenes in Giant Days that take place during a rather disastrous music festival. Besides the expected sex, drugs, and rock and roll, there's also torrential rains, flooding, horrible portable toilets, and epic knitting.

Daisy also gets to shine in this book — having taken on an archeology internship or summer job or class. It's been well established that she is for the most part a very reliable, on task sort of person. She, though, is hounded by the professor leading the dig until she finally loses her ship to epic proportions.

Give me my 6 in 1 tool back.

Volume six, which features Daisy again on the cover, will come out in October.

Five stars
