Cult Classic is a humorous literary fantasy with mystery elements by Sloane Crosley. The ebook version is 304 pages. I listened to the audiobook, which clocks in at eight hours and is narrated by the author. We follow our main character with a first-person point-of-view.

Recently engaged Lola works in the publishing industry in New York City. One night, when she is catching up with some former colleagues, she steps out to buy herself a pack of cigarettes and when returning, runs into a former boyfriend. And then the following night, she runs into another. And then, another. She quickly realizes that this is more than just a coincidence, and learns that this is the work of a very contemporary cult led by her former boss–a former magazine editor turned mystical guru.

I had a lot of fun reading this book! The author narrates the audiobook, and I think she did an amazing job. Lola is at some times very unlikeable but then also very likeable at the same time. I felt seen as an elder millennial trying to figure out what I actually want out of my life. The modern world has so many transactional relationships and this book deftly delves into that topic.

Tropes in this book include: secret cult
