I enjoyed the book. The tone and general feel resonated enough to get me to the end. But there's very little story. The balance of plot and world building doesn't feel right either way - both are excuses for the other. It feels unfair to try and pigeon hole the style- tech noir with a bit of cyberpunk - but with a premise that's a little out there you need a strong story to pull you in and not ask questions about how we ended up in the world in the same place (a giant las vegas/sex district seceded from the US!). The lack of focus means it's a bit of a distraction
