Finished How To Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe

How To Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe by Charles Yu is not your typical time travel science fiction novel. It uses time travel/multiverse and science fiction tropes as a way of discussing family, mental health, and understanding oneself.

The format of the book, the writing style, and the pictures included give credence to the self-referential nature of the book. Its poorly written because the protagonist wrote the book and he is not particularly talented.
