I love that there is such a person in the world as Evan Dara - or at least someone pretending to be Evan Dara - for the sake of challenging what we believe to be literature. I love the ideas in Flee, at least the ones I could pick up, better than the execution, which is somewhat different from The Lost Scrapbook, in which the execution was absolutely mesmerizing. But then again, why bother having an actual opinion of an Evan Dara novel after reading it only once? Until or perhaps upon the event of such a re-read, I would be embarrassed to have given this less than perfect adoration. Meanwhile, -- what is the population of your town? -- are you paying attention?
