This is a jolly good read that has some interesting ideas mixed in. I'm reminded of William Gibson or Neal Stephenson, but with a complete story. (I love them both, but they have a tendency to come up with these very cool ideas and drop them into a story that just kind of meanders and then ends.) I'm partial to non-linear storytelling, but even with that caveat, I believe it is used very well in this instance. Almost "Memento"-like the narrative moves from the end and beginning, toward the middle, in alternating chapters. Also, the book is paced well and isn't too long (so much so that I read it in a single evening, the day I got my Ottawa library card). So in summation, I recommend it.
