I am sorry to say that I could not actually finish this book. I made it to page 90 of 334. It is full of near future techno babble, America is full of annoying, kiss-ass, credit conscious, promiscuous, self serving, youth obsessed assholes. Oh- and the cover art is among the worst I've seen. I'm guessing the graphic artist in charge of coming up with it's design couldn't get into this book any more than I could. It looks like his inspiration was the office supply store rather than the book.
