it was amazing
Recommended to Marty by: Matt Stewart
Recommended for: San Franciscans, humor fans, those who like quirky characters

I was sorry to finish this book, it was so much fun! An entertaining read with a clever premise, humorously told by a clearly skilled writer. I particularly appreciated the setting, as San Francisco was my home for 13 years. In fact, the protagonist lived in my former neighborhood, and much of the action took place in an office building in the Financial District, on the corner where I worked for 7 years. Even the time period corresponded to the time I lived there. I felt right at home! Anyone who knows the City will love this book.

Even for non-San Franciscans this is an enjoyable read if you like quirky, yet believable characters, and plot twists that surprise you. Using a technique I greatly enjoy, the plot of "Sleepwalking" follows multiple threads that gradually interweave in the tradition of Armistead Maupin's "Tales of the City" series (also set in the City by the Bay).
