All the Characters by Golden November is exactly that since it does feel like every name that has come across Milestoneville in print is in this edition of the series, although I'd challenge keen readers to see who isn't. November has gifted readers again with the trademark 'don't read, act it out' panache of the writing. The plots are appointed by scene and there's plenty to work with here so a larger-than-average-sized troupe of readers would be ideal. Some of the best bits are Click-Clack trying to name a baby anything that begins with Click, eight weeks of the weirdest training for the GN Agency ever—and I see what the November did there—a man exists in the Milestoneville-verse with the name Professor Badday, JBT has a wife he married drunk at a bar instead of ordering another drink, Grant has a child, and the picture of an outhouse a la Little House on the Prairie has returned.
It's all fun and games until Jarvis starts singing, 'Shooby dooby doo bebop.' Just kidding. In All the Characters by Golden November, it's fun the whole time, especially when Grandma invites someone on a mystery trip! Our readout for the novel was, as it tends to be now, a party game. We changed it slightly by drawing names out of a hat randomly and it was while having to comb through hundreds of pages to write down individual names that I discovered a flaw in the book's composition: it is in desperate need of a list of characters so selection can happen in full before the acting begins. I would have enjoyed the task of writing everything down if I had one of Chatsworth's famed pens but alas I had a lowly off-brand plastic, and again was wishing for November to supply me with names. The intelligent wit and turns of phrases that November is so skilled at were on point, the photography is crisp and had a sprinkling of black and whites mixed in, and I got to play the part of Thorpe and let everyone know that the value of “my” rock collection was worth over twenty-million bucks. Overall, it was a great day. Very highly recommended.
