It's not a good book
on May 19, 2004
This book is a disappointing read, and it makes me wonder if the publisher and writer think so little of running readers that they would allow something to be published that is so subpar. The plot is rambling, the writing is poor and overwrought, self-conscious and inconsistent, the characters are unlikeable, the time-frame is unclear, the characters shallowly drawn and the events unbelievable. There are a FEW interesting sketches of the runner ethos, but they are few and far-between, and not worth slogging through this book to read.
I wouldn't recommend this to anyone. I think runners deserve better fiction than this.
