this book took me a day and a bit too read, it left me wanting to go on amazon order all the other books in the series, and open up my sub space highway to whoever is delivering them so i can get them as quickly as possible. the book has a wild pulsing dynamic energy, and a just around the corner ready to break tension as tight as a bass string wound tighter than any bass string should ever be wound. a slacker classic of the dramatic rather than wacky kind, for us kevin smith fans think clerks, rather than mallrats, and yet that is not to say that there is no colour here, sure its in black and white and like i said earlier is not wacky, but thats only because the fantastical elements are woven so expertly into the fabric of the stories reality that you do not notice them as being a break with reality, you almost think you could be living in this world and just not have noticed, and what's more you want to.

p.s. the music in this, in my head, my minds ear as it were, sounds like quote unquote records, it resounds in my mind with the same energy, and i can only hope that they have got this write with the movie because that would be AWEZOOM
