YOU: A Fiction

YOU: A Fiction is a second-person narrator story about you, a guy named Leo Evans who does your best to be a good servant. A necessary one. The story starts with you getting a library book stolen from you and then things escalate. There are weapons and photographers that use film (ptui digital!) to stop time and destroy bodies, love is commodified and there's a weird doppelganger made of mint. It's full of weirdness and relationships and weird relationships. I liked it.

Greg Stolze is one of the creators of my favourite roleplaying game, Unknown Armies and You is set in that world. That gives the reader a bit of a grounding in the thoughts motivating some of the characters, but I think as a story it works better for a person who doesn't know the universe (I found some of the explanations a bit on the nose and would have appreciated a bit more vagueness about how things work since I know the rules, but whatevs).

Good weird book.

This book hates you. You, personally, the reader. And yet, you will find yourself amused and engaged while the book insults your morals, your tastes, and your life choices. You will let the book indulge itself while it tells you a story of a fiasco about a collection of strange people doing ordinary things for unfathomable reasons, and sometimes doing extraordinary things for all-too-human reasons.

A fun, twisting dive into the Unknown Armies world that's a great mystery too. If you're new to the setting it neatly drips in the information you need, and if you're experienced there's lots of 'aha' moments as you spot references to systems and figures in the books. Unlike 'Godwalker' it's a very personal and interior story, and for me shows where UA really shines - at the messy interactions between flawed people, ramped up to 11 by the existance of magick and obsessions. Not that you shouldn't read Godwalker too!
