really liked it

Read in July, 2009 , read count: 1

Although a graphic novel I did not read it but rather listened to it on audio. It'd pretty cool, made in the 70s some of the references of technology of course are woefully out of date but it's still interesting even if they say "way out" and "dig it".

The plot is an undercover narc agent starts losing his mind, or is it the drugs, or is it some sort of strange alternative reality?

A bit trippy to listen to it, the further he goes into this world, best no to listen/read this on anything. :)

I watched the movie as well, pretty cool, it's made like a moving graphic novel which is really interesting but if I hadn't read the book I'm not sure I would find him going nuts very plausible, everything happens too fast.
