Picked up The Fun Parts yesterday afternoon at the library and was through it a couple hours later. Easily as good as The Ask.

Newest one was pretty fun, even if the "villain" reads a little heavy handed and all too convenient from 2023 but I like the weirdo LES characters.

i didn't love the new one. he's a great writer but it just has the same thing where writers try to write about rock bands where it never feels authentic. maybe it was supposed to be kind of silly bc the whole book was a bit cartoonish but it didn't work for me. having the main characters' band be called "the shits" was emblematic of that, plus all the band members having "band names" - none of that feels like NYC in the early '90s to me.
