wth just happened? it was going just fine with all the computer business, and I enjoyed most of it.but then the story started jumping dimensions and nearly lost me. brilliant zombie jokes however pulled me back, while robot and cyborg invasion muddied the waters again. confusing, but I want book 2

Leaving this unrated. Really enjoyed the first half, but then it all got away from me. This book was definitely smarter than me. It grew way too bizarre and weird. And in my current mood, I couldn't find the patience to try to follow the logic, if there was any. Left me feeling frustrated and then j...

I am afraid that I am too stupid or too uneducated for this book. Therefore no rating from me. I liked the language and the general feel of the novel, but I still don't have a strong picture of Mori or Alan before my inner eye. Let's not start about the plot (which plot???).

Let me start by saying what this book is not. Some of the issues readers have had, I believe, might have been headed off by adjusting expectations. I know this is a Dreamspinner title, so people walk in with certain expectations. Please leave them with your shoes at the door. We've just had the carp...

3.5 starsReview Summary: A book that hit so many of my buttons I should have LOVED it, but it didn’t quite work for me, even as it did, which made rating it challenging.Review: It was the best of books, it was the worst of books. Okay, that's a bit hyperbolic in both directions, but the fact is ther...
