it was amazing

In Nymphomation, Jeff Noon returns to the Manchester of Vurt and Pollen, but in the year 1999 - a time before the vurt and before Fecundity 10 created all the cross breeds that populate Noon's first two novels.

The story revolves around a lottery (based on dominoes) that is being tested in Manchester before being rolled out to all of England. Daisy Love, our main character, is a mathematics student who becomes mixed up with a group of students who are trying to unravel the secrets of the lottery. As the story continues, we see that the events unfolding are the genesis of all the weirdness in the Manchester of Vurt and Pollen.

As usual, Noon's prose is amazing. On top of that, the plot in Nymphomation is his best so far. Definitely superior to Pollen, this final entry in the series ranks right up there with the Vurt (the first).
