this was a really good book, i immidiatly picked it up after reading VURT (which in my opinion is the best book ever so read it!) I went into reading this book with very high expectations because VURT was soooo good. Nymphomation was good dont get me wrong i enjoyed it a lot but towards the end it gets a little stretched out. This is another Noon masterpiece but take my advice and read Vurt first.

My god, read this book. Jeff Noon is one of the few science fiction writers out there who is writing on all cylinders. This tells a story of lottery-mania, restaurants, love, gambling, obsession and life in all its wasted glory.
Remember, reading Jeff Noon makes you smart.

i'd looked at this book - and jeff noon in particular, quite a bit in the bookstores. kept picking it up, then putting it down again .. then again, and again. it started with 'automated alice', one of his other books (which is now, after reading this, next on my list to purchase!), and i just somehow picked this one up instead.
i have never found a science-fiction book to be so poetic. the style, the rhythm, the characterisation.. everything felt like a bizarre cubist landscape, with super-automated camera jibes. twists and turns - this is a book for the imaginative, for those who can -see- a book while it is being read.. read it in one sitting. jeff noon is absolutely incredible, and i fully intend to purchase the rest of his artistry.

I found Jeff Noon's "Vurt" to be an extraordinarily exciting head trip through his most phenomenal imagination; I loved it!
"Nymphomation" has much of the fascinating style and energy that Vurt is very capable of, but seems to lack substance for me.
As before, I loved being immersed in Noon's scrambled vision of the almost future. I breathlessly trailed along with his characters racing towards their uncertain fates as their dark world of Manchester bubbled and squirmed under the influence of the Blurbflies that were inexorably saturating their consciousness.
And then, and then...... no biggy.
If you have the time, read this one for the trip, but not for the destination.

Format: Paperback
This is possibly the WORST book that I have ever read! This phenominally badly written book is packed with obviously out of touch attempts to key into areas of youth culture. Cliched and naive imagery and dialogue somehow detract from a simplistic and uninventive narrative. It is predictable, boring and entirely uninteresting. Never read this book.
