There is much to admire about this book. It is crisply written, doesn't carry much verbiage and has an interesting plot. Yet, it still serves a thin gruel which maybe, in part, the nature of the plot the author has constructed which requires a little too much explanation in the coda; explanation which could have more usefully been folded into the story. It is to be applauded for the way it folds in cultural trends and extends them into a story that moves, generally, along at a pace, though once or twice it does tread water whilst the author hammers a point home. There is violence, there is a long chase, the whole book is a chase, there is a class structure, there are Angels and Demons, there is a commentary on how science can be morphed into belief and life is the reward and death the consequence of the Game (life). The Meta-game transforms it's players to would-be immortals or meat. Everyone enters as would-be immortals, but they are not equal. Death is the leveller.

I am glad I read this book, I did enjoy it, it has something to say and it has ambition. What it needs is more characterisation.
