really liked it

A long multi-character narrative whose actors are revealed to us via their various addictions. On a grander scale society is an addict too, and we likewise understand it by seeing it as such. Throughout are several clever bits that stay with you long after the last page has been turned.

This is the sort of Novel Dr. Manhattan from The Watchmen would have written.

One star off for all the damn footnotes. Clever, but also too clever.
