Now if that is isn’t the scientifically irrefutable proof that it is impossibly impossible for Brooke Bolander of the Glorious Talons and Luscious Trail of Dead to have written the present most discombobulating story I don’t know what is Indeed my dear Spockie Indeed The Only Harmless Great Thing is everything Bolander’s story usually aren’t verbose as fish Disjointed and clunky as shrimp Confusing as suid Even so if you’ve never heard of Topsy the Elephant andor th

One of the earlier versions of the finished product I'm sure But stranger if you're here combing through the wilds of Goodreads to see if this book is worth pre ordering or buying the answer's simple YessssssThe Only Harmless Great Thing is a raw nerve played by an orchestra A song of ache and ghosts radium girls whispering from across the ether a thousand bad things tied together with the uestion 'what if' and given the opportunity to exact a grim revenge It has angry elephants It has girls at the end of their ropes It has desperation It is full of dyingAnd it is beautiful Bolander swings between three PoVs in a tightly plotted narrative changing voices for each And I'm not talking about small little changes Every voice has its own melody its own cadence and lilt And it
