One of the most creative, fascinating sci-fi books out there today. Noon's language helps set the tone and creates a world all of its own - a world where swallowing a feather will take you to a curious place and reality is standing up to a band of walking, trash-talking dogs.

Jeff Noon is a wierd, wierd man. When you meet him in person, it's easy to see where he gets his ideas. Vurt is a classic cyberpunk novel that got quite a lot of well deserved press in its day. All that and it's a mighty fine read too.

Vurt is... weird. Seriously, what the hell is this? It's like A Scanner Darkly meets LSD. A bunch of kids get high on virtual reality so entwined with the world, it can alter reality itself. It's like reading someone attempting to chronicle a series of drug trips, and... it actually works. Vurt is excellent, enthralling even. Made-up words drive a breakneck pace through scenes imaginary and insane, yet I felt for the characters and wanted some tiny happiness for them, and that was even before their lives became truly difficult. I'll definitely need to pick up more of Noon's work.
