Vurt started with a cool premise A future Manchester UK filled with an assortment of new species of human a new social structure and the central feature of the book a new druggameescape from reality called vurt One of the problems with the book is that vurt is vurt Through the entire plot we re left kind of fuzzy as to what it actually is People take feathers and well we re not exactly sure what happens They see things differently but sometimes act parts out in the real world Sometimes the others they are with in the real world are there sometimes they are each experiencing their own thing Is it a drug Is it a game Is it real These things are never really addressed and as a result a lot going on in the book is confusing The author plunges us into the middle of a futuristic cyberpunk world and never explains any of it to us It s assumed that we re caught up on what s going on While parts of it reveal themselves to us bit by bit much of it is a mish mash of future sounding words and images that don t really make sense That however is not the major flaw in the book While the setting could have used some explaining here and there the plot of the story was still clear enough to follow I got what was going on even if I didn t understand everything in the world The book s fatal flaw was in the characters While they were certainly vivid outgoing and memorable they were also flat and acting without sensible motivation As the plot progresses and secondary characters are risking their lives helping or loving the main character there is no expiation as to why the go out of the way to help him Even when character motivation is attempted it s done poorly One character claims to be aiding Scribble the lead for his brother While we know his brother and their story there is no link between what he does for Scribble and the brother A new character is brought into the group at the beginning of the story Scribble treats her poorly and she puts her life on the line to help him be reunited with his sister The character interactions remind me of a table top role playing game You all are in a group it doesn t matter why but you have to help each other Even if it goes against what you think you re character is in the end you help because that s what keeps the game and my plot moving forwardSpeaking of lacking development the main love story is dull The only thing it has going for it is the incest factor That makes it moderately interesting but only in a socially deviant sort of way There s no warmth between them we don t know WHY he loves her so much other than that she s hot and there is little growth between the two of them Even though it s central to the story we no little about her other than that she s the main character s sister and she s hot I m sad I didn t like this book I love the genre and I liked the premise Unfortunately the book is like a fireworks display than anything approaching a good read Some flash and bang pretty pictures but little logic from one scene to the next If you d like your home game of shadowrunner to be a book this may be alright for you If you want exciting scene after exciting encounter with no rhythm reason or rational you may like the book If you re looking for a good story a well constructed world and dynamic characters you can care about stay away

First let me say I REALLY wanted to like this book Hell there are several reasons why I didn t want to NOT like this book not the least of which are It was recommended by a friend whose opinion I respect I feel like I ve hated on all the books I ve read so far this year It is highly rated among fellow Goodreaders like all of the other books I ve hated on latelySeriously that last one really gets me I ve never had such a bad streak of books Wool Southern Reach Casual Vacancy and now Vurt It makes me wonder what the fuck is wrong with my taste Am I that picky Am I that out of touch Am I just too fucking stupid to grok the depth of these works Have I lost my seat at the Cool Kids Table What the fuckAnyway part of me would be content leaving this book two stars and a four word review What The Actual Fuck But instead I ll give it the good ol college try Here goesVurt is a near future sort of cyberpunk dystopia where people escape reality by entering via different colored feathers tickled upon their throats a shared dream state known as the Vurt The story is told through the eyes of Scribble a member of a gang of Vurt junkies known as the Stash Riders Scribble has entered the Vurt so often and has such talent with it that he s able to go there without the use of a feather This leads to a majority of the book sounding like the escapades of someone on an LSD trip as retold by a paranoid schizophrenic I spent half my time with this book trying to figure out what was reality and what wasn t Of course that s a kudos to Noon as it perfectly inserts us into the mindset of such a fucked up character but it makes the reading work than pleasure The effect would be perfect for a short story but over a 300 page novel it is just too much The closest thing I can compare it to is this Imagine reading the novelization of Inception where the rules and logic of the dream world are never explained and the dreams therein make little to no sense Sounds good rightThe characters Let s talk about them for a second I couldn t relate to any of them Perhaps I m not British enough Perhaps I haven t done enough of the right drugs Perhaps and I think this may be it they are just shit There was a single character I felt a touch than nothing for and she disappears before the halfway mark only to make a brief and inconseuential appearance toward the end AwesomeScribble the eyes through which we see this world and the obvious protagonist let s talk about him He s a junkie You feel for him initially because he lost his lover in the Vurt and is trying to find her Then you realize that this lost lover is also his sister and surprisingly you just don t care for him that much any Could I ever care about a main character in an incestual relationship Sure if you give me a million words spread across five books and your name is George RR MartinThe Beetle the leader of the Stash Riders A horrible human I was endeared to him in the opening pages as he was careening the Stashmobile through the streets of Manchester because he reminded me of Nux from Mad Max Fury Road What a day What a lovely day Of course that all ends when they get to their apartment and he starts being physically abusive to his friends and fucks a girl that s not his girlfriend loud enough for his girlfriend to hear How sweet He semi redeemed himself by the end of the book but I stopped caring about him long before that happenedMandy the previously mentioned not girlfriend girl that has about as much depth as a rain puddle in the midday sun Seriously I m lucky to have remembered her nameBridget Beetle s girlfriend She s abused and cheated on by him and I m rooting for her and then she disappears Mr Noon if you re only going to endear us to a single character how about you make sure they stick around to have their story told ThanksThe world Hmmm Well there s the Vurt a shared dream state that I couldn t care less about There are dream snakes apparently both inside and outside of the Vurt What s a dream snake Good fucking uestion What else Oh there s the Thing from Outer Space which isn t really from outer space but is instead an amorphous tentacled creature that crossed over from the Vurt There s people that fuck their sister And people that fuck dogs And people that are half human and half dog that masturbate robot dogs so that s cool Oh and don t forget this is cyberpunk How can you tell Well because Noon throws robo in front of random nouns like robodog and calls regular old dreadlocks droidlocks because IT S CYBERPUNK MANAnd finally the plot Scribble lost his sisterfuck buddy in the Vurt He trips balls for 300 pages to bring her home The end Should you read Vurt Probably I m obviously missing the point with this book and I m in a small minority with that That s fine If anything I m learning that the average rating a book is granted via thousands of reviews is one of the last metrics I should consider when determining what to read next Go get feathered up and see for yourself
