Just read The Surrogates

The consensus?

Great fucking world building. Unfortunately, the writing, not so much. The story and dialogue was amateurish, overly formulaic, bland and i didnt care about any of the characters at all. Not even steeplejack, and im a villain fiend. Now its possible that that was yet another painfully detailed way of bringing the world to life, nobody feels anything in this book, because theres no real human interaction anymore. Maybe he tried to bring that feelinglessness over to the readers by removing actual interest from the story and characters. Maybe he was too busy building the actual world that he neglected to actually write in characters living there.

Whatever the reason, i was not impressed. It happens.

What a fucking sweet cover though man.
