This is an amazing book set in an incredible world overcome by fungus. I like the way it was written to tease you with the plot which is sprinkled throughout so that everything is familiar when you get there. It is even more intriguing because it is written simultaneously with the viewpoints of two central characters, again interwoven like the plot. A fun book and an introspective book but cynical and haunting. I can't wait to get my hands on another of his books!
