In his quest to find out why Bridget took her own life, he encounters a depressive (and possibly immortal) cult leader; a man with a car that can drive out of this world and into others; a beautiful psychotic with a chrome shotgun; and a bridge that, maybe, leads to heaven. Darrin's journey leads him into a place called the Briarpatch, which is either the crawlspace of the universe, or a series of ambitious building projects abandoned by god, or a tangle of alternative universes, depending on who you ask. Somewhere in that disorderly snarl of worlds, he hopes to find Bridget again.

A fun experience, as expected from Pratt
I really enjoyed my trip into the Briarpatch. The world was built well, and the characters were interesting to watch develop which did a good job of making me feel sympathetic toward them. There were a few points where I couldn't follow a characters logic, or they reacted in a way that I found hard to believe, but it was usually amusingso it didn't bother me much. Plus they're in a fantasy world so unexpected reactions are expected at times.
I also really enjoyed Dave Thompson's reading, he really gave me a feel for the characters.
I hope to see more from the both of them, maybe even more trips into the Briarpatch.

Very original story with a great narrator
I downloaded this book after listing to a podcast by the narrator and was not disappointed. I thought the story line was very original with plot twists and turns. The book did what I want a book to do: Take my mind to a different reality. This was my first Tim Pratt book, and I liked this enough to seek out more of his writing.
