    Finally got round to reading this one - I have had his books in the house for way over 10 years without ever getting round to them. Why have I waited so long? Shame on me! It lived up to all the positive reviews and comments here. I was reminded of William Gibson more than any other author, for example Virtual Light. Lots of positives - he writes very well and creates scenes which are constantly fresh and surprising and at times subverts the reader's expectations. A Good array of well drawn quirky characters particulary the central two. Vivid descriptions. Great setting. My only criticism was that there were too many balls in the air for the length of the book and it didn't really come to a completely satisfactory conclusion over the last 50 pages or so but that is nit picking really.

    Can't wait to read the next one.
