PLAY TO WIN PLAY TO WIN PLAY TO WIN.
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.
