If William Gibson, Kevin Smith, and Quentin Tarantino had sex in the back of Jack Kerouac's car - this book would be the baby.
Mind-controlled cars. Drugged up anti-heroes with lots of hilarious wise-cracking. An all-devouring MegaStore that turns it's customer's into zombies. And lots of beer and lust and other stuff.
Until we get a movie version, this audiobook is a great substitute.
Brilliant and unique story told through dialogue like a stage play. Captures unity of place, time, and theme. Mandatory read for a true science fiction fan
When a character describes her resurrection into The Big Time.

Anytime Greta (main character) describes her death during the Nazi overthrow of Chicago in the 1950s.

He didn't understand that this story was gonzo and supposed to be funny. This book should have been read by a comedian. Poe was too serious and spoke way too slowly.
The main lady who continually sells Haunted House over and over again to maximize her commissions.
If you listen to this book on 2X speed, it will be more that way the narration should have been.
