Format: Paperback
I can say that it is one of the best SF books I have read (and I have read quite a few, I rarely review them).
There are numerous interesting ideas, enough for most authors to have written 3 or 4 books off the back of normally. The text hardly shows its age even now, unlike some other 70s SF (imho). It has no dull bits (that I noticed) and is action packed without the slightest feeling of repetition.
A word of warning though, this will be a very challenging read if you are prudish.
For everyone else, this is a brilliant book.

I'd heard of this novel and was keen to read it but could never get my hands on a copy, so it's always a risk that the book when you eventually get it will be a let down. Particularly when it was written decades ago, but no such worry here. The story hasn't aged and is as weird and strange as good cyberpunk should be. Some of the ideas such as the Chicken Ranch or The visitor could easily have been expanded but by keeping them short only added to the bizzare nature of the world created. The violence and sex may have lost some of it's power to shock in this internet age but it still provides some though provoking stuff. A good read to add to your cyberpunk canon

Well its different thats for sure, and I can se straight away that it influenced a generation of writers. Fast paced, way out, and never bogs down its nothing like SF of the 50s or 60s....its a New Thing.

Read this in the mid 80's when I was 14 and loved it ! Still very good, though the cover is now rubbish.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cyber dystopia 25 Sept. 2016
By Eric R. Demski - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is the beginnings of cyber punk, the combination of science fiction dystopia and nihilistic adventure. What makes it a bit more impressive for me are two things: the commentary on the human unconscious mind, and the bizarre but brilliant weapon called the "flash glove". This is also one of the most politically incorrect books I have read in a while. The edition is difficult to get a hold of and is out of print.
5.0 out of 5 stars Strange and compelling 17 Nov. 2016
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I grew up with one foot in Orange County and one in Los Angeles. This bizarre story truly takes the darkest essences of these two such different places and shows us their absurd and nightmarish potential. Sexual fantasies made into horrifying reality take center stage. I thoroughly enjoyed this book but I'm not all sure why.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant first novel 22 Jun. 2014
By John B. Dozier - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This was written while Jeter was in college, but it took years to find a publisher as it offended nearly everyone. Well, times rolled on and lo and behold, with the demise of many taboos, a masterpiece emerged. Not for the faint hearted or prudish.
5.0 out of 5 stars Novel edgy ideas and great writing style 1 Dec. 2016

Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
K. W. Jeter should be recognized alongside the greats of science fiction. Novel edgy ideas and great writing style.
3.0 out of 5 stars The journey is better than the destination 23 Dec. 2014
By A. Paez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The journey is better than the destination. That being said A rather original premise, which is something rare. I enjoyed it overall.
