it was amazing

My best summary of this is: cyberpunk as written by Lewis Carroll. It's got Carroll's fine, febrile prose and mythology down pat, from the stream-of-consciousness conversations to the nonsensical little details of the world; but under the Victorian fantasy romp is the same sort of dehumanizing future William Gibson was reaching for. To say much more is to ruin this book for you; you have to read.

Noon is one of the finest minds in writing today. Period.
