Day 30 – What book are you reading right now?

I am currently reading Pollen by Jeff Noon, which is the follow on to Vurt. I was telling my friend in work who enjoys fantasy and sci-fi (practically has a library in her house, I’m very jealous!) how much I’d enjoyed Vurt but I hadn’t read any of the other Jeff Noon books. The next morning it was on my desk!

I took it to my hospital appointment with me on Wednesday and got straight into it. His use of language is brilliant but it’s quite difficult to explain what I like so much about it. It’s witty, but the wit is subtle. The description is brilliant, but so far from flowery. It’s bright and sharp, but in a unrelenting way, like chopping up a cartoon character with a razor blade.

Very strange, very good, I love it.

    How do we go about spiriting Noon’s book to deepest, darkest South Wales? I know it’s not yours you see.

    I am absolutely boggled to know there is a sequel to Vurt. Though I think I’d have to do some rereading to get caught up…
