Interesting take on of the establishment. Mr. Llime has a knack for creating freaky, complex yet fascinating characters. Even his villains are so well put together that you feel sorry for them when they get what they deserve. I liked this one a lot even though the torture described in the Payback chapter was a bit too much for me. I went and reread the Neptune Riots chapter to get back the sense of joy that I had lost. It made me laugh out loud one more time. The circus atmosphere combined with the topless feminists fighting the pro-lifers was hilarious. On the overall, I enjoyed the book very much and can hardly wait to see what the sequel might bring.
