The book has any amazing feel to it. Just like every other of his books, it grabs you with an awe factor. Though there is no one long winding conspiracy theory or one underlying story line, there are many small stories in parallel that add up together. But even if they didn't it would be alright.
It takes you to a futuristic world and it stays futuristic until you read the author's note or the bibliography.
The shocking thing is how much of it is true. The bibliography is the freak part. If so much is true then it won't be long before every part of our body is patented and we walk around with 'stolen property'.
I can't speak more about the plot without the spoilers. But there is a smart ape, an abusive orang and a talking calculating bird!!!
Now read it NEXT.
