The Raw Shark Texts by Steven Hall
Rating: 4.5 of 5 stars
Another bit of a mind-bending book for me. Maybe not as much as Brasyl, but I found the concept of, well, conceptual sharks and dissociative conditions rather interesting. Somewhat less interesting were the relationships between the characters, but they worked to their purpose of driving the plot along. My biggest complaint was that the shark scenes were far to reminiscent of “Jaws,” but I suppose that’s a minor quibble. The book really was quite good, and I’d recommend it as summer beach reading. As long as there aren’t any real sharks around your beach.
Next up is A Year in the Merde by Stephen Clarke.
