really liked it
bookshelves: science-fiction

Okay, I finished the series and if I had more time I'd fill this entire review with my impressions. Alas, I don't have that much time and so I must be brief.

It's a work that most sci-fans ought to read. It's a perspective that has colored the conspiracy genre since the early 70's. Without this book, The Invisibles, Vol. 1: Say You Want a Revolution would have never been written. And without Grant Morrisons graphic novels, the world would be slightly less colorful.

I love the lynchpin aspect of John Dillinger's life. I love how everything seems to revolve around the government's manufactured story of his outlaw ways and eventual staged death.

I love how they threw so many disparate conspiracy tropes in a blender and poured out a complete tale. I love how it all boils down to higher intelligences.

I also love how it's basically an unconventional love story.
