Linguistically Psychedelic

What an amazing book. The futurological use of language is a joy and I'm sure I missed half of the psychedelic drug aptonyms. I probably need a sniff of lingorememberall gas. The stark dystopian future of a veneer of drug induced normality that avoids even seeing, let alone dealing with, the truth of life has a darkly appealing mirror of today's slide into shallow celebrity. Is it all a dream, or does he wake up in the future? I love the image of doped up half robot people getting absolutely knackered climbing up a lift shaft, believing they are actually just standing in an elevator ... is brilliant!
