This is how Cyberpunk should be done!

What did you love best about Metrophage?

It is just archtype cyberpunk. I'd put this up there with William Gibson or walter Jon Williams. It seems a bit dated now, but he nails the genre so perfectly you can't help but love it.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Metrophage?

Just the imagery throughout the story is worth a listen all by itself. The story and characters are great but the author pays such attention to every little detail. It's mind-boggling.


Have you listened to any of Peter Ganim’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have not heard any other performance of Mr. Ganim's previously. He has a rich smooth voice and has a good range of voices. I'd love to hear him on some other books.


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Metrophage. LA is in flames.


Any additional comments?

This is a great book. Be advised this is not Sandman Slim. The tone and writing are much different , but excellent nonetheless. The story has a few explict sex scenes and lots viloence and drug use (staples of cyberpunk literature). So, definitely not for the kiddies. I strongly recommed this book if you love cyberpunk.

Classic Cyberpunk

Great narration and story. Would like to listen again. Story complex, rich with detail, honed with a sweet edge of pulp sci-fi. Beautiful writing.
