Oli Jacobs - Bad Sandwich

Oli Jacobs – Bad Sandwich

 

This book is weird with a capital “we”. It’s no real surprise that this is an indie novel, because I can’t imagine mainstream publishers picking something like this up. Even though I’ve categorised it as fiction, it’s almost like a long, psychedelic prose poem using stream of consciousness techniques and word association. At the same time, though, it does also tell a story.

It’s also super visual, which is refreshing, and I actually thought that Jacobs did a great job of laying out the book while keeping it all on-theme with his unusual approach to writing a narrative. It was a lot of fun, but I don’t know whether I only thought it was fun because I’m also an author.

If you like experimental stuff and you want to support an indie author then you should give this one a chance. I’ve read a few of Oli’s books so far and each of them have been fun. I’m looking forward to reading some more of his stuff, and Bad Sandwich is a triumph for what it is.
