An excellent listen, the book keeps a steady pace and delivers a few twists along the way.
I rarely write reviews and have been a memeber since almost the begining of Audible (sadly when I upgraded Audible forgot who I was before becoming a Platinum Listener). This was a thuroughly enjoyable listen and I found myself drawn to Google Maps over and over trying to equate the top down view with Bryson's on the street descriptions of the people and places.
If you need an in office vacation then I reccomend you download this book and spend your lunches listening to this book and mousing around Google Maps.
This book and the one preceding is quite a literary ride. The material is excellent and the voice-acting is superb. I've been a long time fan of Audible and I seek books that I can listen to that require me to pause and think while listening, this book most certainly does.
There are a few steamy sex scenes in the book but the cyber punk genre is definitely satisfied. My apologies to the author for stereotyping, but this pulpy sci-fi novel fits perfectly in the cyber punk realm. The language is raw, and the descriptions are quite graphic, a 17+ year old crowd recommended (it's the parent in me). I look forward to the next installment of Morgan's envisioned future.
Both books are excellent listens.
