really liked it

I liked this dark "speculative fiction" pulp-noir book a lot. In spite of reservations I have about some of the plotting (in the future would it really be necessary for an undercover cop to be arrested for real every time he wants to communicate with his supervisor?) I give it a solid four stars. The story really got under my skin and kept me guessing. I liked that there were so many ideas intertwined with the plot (Fatal Familial Insomnia, massive multiplayer games, a disease that kills its victims gradually by depriving them of sleep, genetically modified crops, the apocolypse etc, etc).

I will be reading more Charlie Huston soon.
