2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Benjamin TOP 500 REVIEWER on 16 July 2010
Format: Paperback
Set in a post apocalyptic USA, nothing is quite as it seems. Chaos, aka Everett, the main character cannot remember exactly who he is let alone what caused the break from the world before to the world now, and he cannot find satisfactory answers in Hatfork Wyoming, the dilapidated town populated with mutants where he has a position of some sort of oversight, so he sets of to find answers, taking with him a young mutant girl.

He may not find all the answers he's looking for, but along the way he does find love and hope, although it may not exactly match the dreams he's been having, the dreams that started his doubting.

In Amnesia Moon dreams and reality become confused in a sort of modern day Alice in Wonderland; funny, thought provoking and highly imaginative.

Format: Paperback
I picked this up because I'd really enjoyed Lethem's "Gun With Occasional Music", "Motherless Brooklyn", and parts of "The Wall of the Sky, The Wall of the Eye". Unfortunately, this surrealist sci-fi road-trip never leads anywhere interesting. Chaos, the amnesiac hero, is on a quest to discover the truth of what what happened the world (we are given hints of alien attack, nuclear/biological holocaust, etc.) and his own identity. However, memory, time and truth seem to be totally subjective in this landscape and are somehow dictated and controlled by his dreams. The overwhelming subjectivity results in a surprisingly dull roadtrip, as he struggles to find himself in a world which makes no sense. As with some of Lethem's other work (especially his short stories), there are a some interesting ideas, flashes of genius writing, and the sense that Lethem doesn't know how to finish what he's started. Unless you're really into dreamlike surrealism, skip this one, 'cause Lethem's capable of much better.

Format: Paperback
I've been a great fan of Lethem since I picked up Gun, With Occasional Music while travelling to Amsterdam. His ability to mix genres and make the absurd seem normal offers a refreshing, unique (and in this case - metaphysical) reading experience.
This story starts of with Chaos, a man who chooses to live in a multiplex cinema in a mutant town after the bomb has dropped. He and others in the town pick up the dreams of Kellog, who one day reveals that the bomb never did drop......
