    Story
    "A different kind of Post Apocalypse"

    If you like the cyber-punk fiction this is a book to check out. It has many of the usual cyber-punk tropes; high tech, lowlife, amphetamines in blister packs, humanity surviving on after some catastrophe etc. but, it also has a unique earth reclaiming what's hers, man vs nature perspective that makes this story all the more intriguing.
    Fair warning ; it starts out a little slow, but builds wonderfully to a satisfying conclusion. Check this one out. You won't regret it.

    I'm Audible's first Editor-at-Large, the host of In Bed with Susie Bright -- and a longtime author, editor, journo, and bookworm. I listen to audio when I'm cooking, playing cards, knitting, going to bed, waking up, driving, and putting other people's kids to bed! My favorite audiobooks, ever, are: "True Grit" and "The Dog of the South."

    Story
    "Kadrey at His Future-Primitive Best"

    This novel is cyber-punk at its primitive vortex: The Amazon Jungle is growing North, consuming California. San Francisco is the last bastion of civilization. A famous rock star has faked his own death and is hiding in the City, where he meets a waitress, who believes she's calling the jungle North with its song.

    Meanwhile, sinister forces try to coax Mr. Rock God back into the spotlight—but to what end?

    Kadrey's work is entirely original. As he writes in the book —"Like alley cats and razor blades at a million decibals over a tense candomblé backbeat."

    His story, the heart of the Kamikaze, finds the emotional core of future dystopia.

    Kevin T. Collins does an admirable job keeping up the whirlwind story.

    Story
    "Derivative and tedious"

    Dreams and drug trips, however fascinating to the participants are rarely entertaining in the telling. This book is like a description of someone else's dream.
