This book was very good! I really enjoyed the contrasting viewpoints and the characters I relate the character a lot more in this book than in the first book!

It's time to return to Night Vale. The mysterious town where menacing glow clouds run the school board, where mountains don't exist, and where all conspiracies are, in truth, true. This is where the outsider, and scientist Nilanjana has come to reside. However, even though she has lived there for quite some time, and she feels "satisfied" with her life, she herself doesn't quite feel like she belongs. The second novel side story of the hilarious Welcome to Night Vale podcast follows this young woman as she discovers that there is more to life than doing science. While trying to uncover the cause of a series of mysterious pits that are devouring chunks of the town, and its people, Nilanjana gets involved with a wide-grinning cult devoted to an all-smiling god, and in particular, one young man whose faith is about to be tested. It is all around a smart and funny read, and is better written than the first. It also pulls in more of the regular podcast characters than the other. In either case, the writers do an excellent job of appeasing old fans, and explaining enough to draw in new ones who have no prior knowledge. Praise be to the new Night Vale novel! It devours!

At the 1st time of Carlos fondling his scientific device while complaining City Council, I acquired prescience. But I made myself distracted by Smiling God with pleasure and savor the identity of Darryl, Pamela, etc.
My fascination of this genderless robotic inorganic town didn’t last long, quite a journey of imagination, juvenile horror, and full of contemporary pulp, but never abstract nor boring. A central theme is also a long-debated subject, elevated this light read higher, a great accomplishment though, only a bonus for me.
