I've read some good books lately, but it's been a while since I read a literal page turner. I was reading the last few chapters of Gun, With Occasional Music while sauteing my dinner, I couldn't wait to see what happened next.
Jonathan Lethem has taken the pulp noir fiction and put it in a wild, mixed up sci-fi universe of highly evolved upright animals, sped up evolved “babyheads” who hang out in baby bars, hologram houses, and karma identification cards.
I doubt you could have more fun reading anything else. A pure delight especially for fans of the genres like myself. He wrote one of the best books I've read this past year (Fortress of Solitude) and now has written two.
