What’s the oddest book you’ve ever read? Did you like it? Hate it? Did it make you think? From the archives.

Big Machine by Victor LaValle was a weird, odd, book. I liked it but didn't love it.

From the publisher:
Ricky Rice is a middling hustler with a lingering junk habit, a bum knee, and a haunted mind. A survivor of a suicide cult, he scrapes by as a porter at a bus depot in Utica, New York, until one day a mysterious letter arrives, summoning him to enlist in a band of paranormal investigators comprised of former addicts and petty criminals, all of whom had at some point in their wasted lives heard what may have been the voice of God.
