You Were Never Really Here: A Review For People With No Time For Reviews


I try to read for fun every night and for at least an hour. Earlier this week, I picked up You Were Never Really Here by Jonathan Ames (creator of Bored to Death and Blunt Talk). I finished it in one go, which is something I’ve rarely done in the past few years. Granted it was a quick read at 112 pages. If you’re into noir, especially noir with a hard-boiled kind of protagonist who carries a hammer, this might be right up your alley. The subject matter is also a bit dark (I’m not a good judge of this as I spent years studying German and Austrian literature which has a tendency to being pretty dark and grim itself), so enter at your own risk. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good, quick read.
