This review is from: Nymphomation (Paperback)
A brilliant ride through the pre-Vurt world. Jeff Noon continues to regress through time, going back to the origins of items and themes seen commonplace in his previous novels, 'Vurt' and 'Pollen'. The technical details can sometimes drag a bit, bu the sheer imagination and verve in the novel wins out easily. Just the way each chapter starts, gradually corrupting the slogans and prose into a psychadelic whirlpool of viciousness, is enough to make me read it again and again. If you're not already a Noon fan then you'd be best off starting with Vurt as otherwise you may not 'get' a lot of the points, but for Noon afficionados this is as good as it gets!
