IMHO Mr. Hendrix has used his many degrees to concoct a buzzword-laden novel from heck. If the idea of reading a sentence like "...the upshot of of crypto-behaviourist ideas ... at least in academic circles, was a generalized denial of the actuality of individual consciousness" every few pages doesn't turn you on, then stay away.
Philip Chaston
There are times when ideas drown plot, characters and so on. A brave attempt at charting transcendence though I rarely care for an alien deus ex machina.
