Finch - Jeff VanderMeer Who can write a book about mushroom people and get away with it? I wavered between 3 and 4 stars for this book, but ultimately the ability to write a book about something so ridiculous and not have it end up head-bangingly awful warrants 4 stars. Also worth mention is the simultaneous beauty and grotesqueness of the setting. (Ah, the dusk-like phosphorescence of the fungus eating my rotten city.)
