5.0 out of 5 stars Unusual but highly recommended
I remember reading this when it first came out, leaning against the school gates with my mind light years away from grey old January. It was an exciting time for the NA's - now sufficiently distanced from their `source' programme and divorced enough from its shortcomings to explore all kinds of new worlds with a wonderfully Who-ish style.

I remember reading this when it first came out, leaning against the school gates with my mind light years away from grey old January. It was an exciting time for the NA's - now sufficiently distanced from their `source' programme and divorced enough from its shortcomings to explore all kinds of new worlds with a wonderfully Who-ish style. This is a typically Lawrence Miles novel in the best sense: punchy dialogue and unfamiliar settings, with huge ideas juggled playfully and seemingly effortlessly. It also has that Miles quality of operating critically within its host-universe. Gratuitous, overblown, veering towards pretentiousness - perhaps, but with all the zing of genius that those things often presage. A beauty.
