Tropes: Stuffed in the Fridge

Tropes are all around us, on TV, in books, film, and video games. They  allow us to compartmentalize concepts so that our brains don't have to waste too much processing power over-thinking certain ideas, which is both good and bad. After all, when two guys show up with bad Italian/Brooklyn accents in nice suits, our brain tells us that they are gangsters and we don't have to over think it. The authors, directors, and character actors of the world would tell us this is a good thing. After all, these two goons will probably be killed off in the next scene by our hero and the audience doesn't need twelve minutes of back story to understand…

January Blurbing Book Club - Maggot Moon by Sally Gardner

Hello and welcome to the return of the Blurbing Book Club! I hope to continue with the book club throughout 2015. For my first choice, during the month of January, I would love it if we would all read Maggot Moon by Sally Gardner.

This book won lots of awards and was published a few years ago. It's a kind of alternate-history, science-fiction, dystopian read.  Apparently it's a little hard to categorise but what really appeals to me about this book is the original voice of the main character, Standish Treadwell.  He has dyslexia and because of this he sees the world differently... here is the offical product description:
