Survivor. Readers looking for a compact novel with a heavy dose of unusual behavior should consider reading Peter Stenson’s novel titled, Thirty-Seven. Protagonist Mason Hues is Thirty-Seven, the appellation he received when he joined a cult and was assigned the next membership number. The Survivors believe that making themselves very sick leads to honesty and that honesty will lead to change. Stenson presents Mason to us as the last survivor of the cult, but after Mason’s boss, Talley, learns of his backstory, they reignite the journey from sickness toward honesty and change.
Rating: Three-star (It’s ok)
