Vurt by Jeff Noon

Vurt is a feather—a drug, a dimension, a dream state, a virtual reality. It comes in many colors: legal Blues for lullaby dreams. Blacks, filled with tenderness and pain, just beyond the law. Pink Pornovurts, doorways to bliss. Silver feathers for techies who know how to remix colors and open new dimensions. And Yellows—the feathers from which there is no escape. The beautiful young Desdemona is trapped in Curious Yellow, the ultimate Metavurt, a feather few have ever seen and fewer still have dared ingest. Her brother Scribble will risk everything to rescue his beloved sister. Helped by his gang, the Stash Riders, hindered by shadowcops, robos, rock and roll dogmen, and his own dread, Scribble searches along the edges of civilization for a feather that, if it exists at all, must be bought with the one thing no sane person would willingly give.

I was given this book to read from a friend after we came across Pollen two copies of Pollen at my school. I am not an avid reader and it usually takes me awhile to finish a book. This book though I became so engrossed that I read it in a day. Once I was finished I returned the book to my friend and ordered my own copy as I was unable to find at a few book stores I checked out. I have probably read the book a handful of times now, and I still enjoy it.The way in which Noon paints the environments and brings the characters to life motivated me to write a lot more, and I have used the world he created as inspiration for my graphic design work as well.If you are a fan of a gritty, not far into the future cyberpunk; this is a book I would strongly suggest picking up if you find a copy.

On par with "Between Chains and Freedom" by Daniel Lee Wilt. This is a wild tale and thrilling trip worth taking. Five stars all day.

This book is a great futuristic look into the computer age world. I've read and re-read this book more times than I can count. It is a story that contains action and intrige that any culture and age can identify. It's like steping into a video game and being one of the characters.

All I can say--is that this book MOVES. Noon's got a style and a voice that reads like electronica. Beautiful.
