First I gotta say Mr. Lethem: this book is definitely up there for one of the worst book titles ever. Yeesh. I don't know what I would have called this book, but definitely not that.

People who dig the likes of William Gibson and cyberpunky stuff may dig this bizarro dualistic-ally told story by Hurakami. At first it sure seems like it's going to be another chock-full-o-techno jargon-ish sci fi book, but that's really only a piec...more

Keeper? Yep, it's still on the shelf. One of the few instances where I feel that not having the whole collection of a series would just be wrong.
