In his first new novel since 2013, cyberpunk pioneer Rudy Rucker offers his own smart, hilarious, and uniquely gnarly science fiction version of the classic road-trip story.

It's the first book I read by this author and won't be the last.
I appreciated the style of writing and how the characters were written.
The plot is engaging and entertaining, quite fast paced even if the level is not always the same, sometimes it seems to drag on.
A very good book on the whole, I look forward to reading other from this author.
Many thanks to the publisher and Edelweiss for this ARC, all opinions are mine
