I started reading and already almost finished Rob Thomas' Rats Saw God. Yes, Veronica Mars' Rob Thomas. His first novel. Predictably enough, it is as good as a good episode of Veronica Mars. Same tone, same use of flashbacks, same theme. It tells the tale of Steve York, his first love, first Dada work of art, relationship with astronaut father and other various cliche teen topics.
It works though.
ps: I MISS YOU RONNIE.
