Adrian Barnes completed (much much more successfully) the same MA course in writing that I once did. Well, inevitably I go to four loves of mine: Lewis Carroll, Harlan Ellison, the Beatles, and Bob Dylan. Fuck not swearing profusely; these words are a part of the english language for a reason, and at times like this they're damned fucking useful. Gravity always works the same and, even if you intend to “science the sh*t” out of a problem, you need to ensure that the science is accurate.

Every now and again a novel comes along that is so Completely original and captivating that it makes you gasp. It seemed to be hinting at the idea that the real world was blending with the world of the book (despite it not being a fiction piece, instead a non-fiction. It’s sad, but then again those plump collies and German shepherds don’t seem too weighed down by nostalgia for bone-shaped vegan treats and belly rubs from the opposably-thumbed as they wander about, licking their chops.Un saggio sulle parole, la loro origine e il mito di Nod (terra di sogno/incubo che biblicamente diede riparo a Caino) che diventa la nuova Regola per una parte dei sempre svegli (awakened) risvegliati (awakened) dalle predicazioni del folle. Gaps in Paul’s general understanding of what’s going on, as he tries to navigate a Vancouver made monstrous by an other-worldly insomnia plague, are fine with me.

There are few "sleepers" left - Paul, the narrator is one of them - and they have the unfortunate privilige of watching humanity fall to pieces and the world descend into chaos. Not only is that revolting and unnecessary, but that and other instances like it throughout the book give disturbing insight into the author's view of women.By the time she died (the protagonist slit her throat with a box cutter to Save Her From What The World Had Become and What Was Happening to Her), I'd stopped giving a damn. This is certainly a book of unanswered questions, and most frustratingly of all, the protagonist, Paul, doesn't seem interested in what any of the answers are.
