This was fine! A few funny observational bits about IKEA, and a kind of dull story about inter-dimensional homocidal maniacs, but then again that's not really my thing. The chapter headings were the highlight for me: each chapter starts with an IKEA-style diagram of furniture, but as the story progresses the diagrams slowly morph into torture devices.

I read this a few years back but it never made it into my logs here at ELK. It came to mind again because I read Finna, which is also a short scifi book set in an IKEA clone.
