really liked it
Read in March, 2009

Very enjoyable but extraordinarily disturbing book that is centered on the Las Vegas underground, with a focus on punk, porn, and pawn shops. The writing was pretty engrossing, but the story is what pulled me in for the most part. Stories, really -- there are several intertwined. And there's some ambiguity about what happened in the central storyline, which involves the disappearance of a young boy. It's good ambiguity, in my opinion, but some might find it unsatisfying.
