The first have was a fun, witty, futuristic Sci-Fi with a lot of clever things to say about the world. The second half was a bizarre, psychedelic dream world that seemed to give up on the wolves it had created. The last two chapters of the book tell a whole different story that felt irrelevant to the rest of the book. A really strong start with a real flop of an ending.

A cyberpunk-noir detective thriller.
Set in a stylized futuristic city where individuals luve in neighbourhoods organically responsive to their moods and lifestyles, the story begins as a routine missing persons case for its narrator, Stark, an irreverent soft-boiled detective who specialises in "finding people, or things."

I read this a full year ago and I still think about it a lot. I dreamed of the Neighborhoods last night so I logged onto Goodreads this morning and upped my rating from 4 to 5 stars 😂. It had minor issues but it's incredibly unique. SFF fans (especially sff noir fans), check it out!

Absolutely my favourite book ever.

Bklover I'm always interested when it's someone's favorite book ever! I'll have to check it out! 3y
Maxxxpower64 @Bklover I hope it does not disappoint. It's a weird, quasi-dystopian, funny, broken kind of book. My opinion is very subjective based on a very personal connection to the moral of the story. I am sure I have read many books that were technically better than this but this one has a place in my heart. 3y
