Vurt was an SF novel that was really fresh and peculiar’ William Gibson, ‘Transgressive. It got under your skin like Cronenberg, or like Poppy Brite’ Chuck Wendig, ‘Vurt is a gripping piece of speculative fiction’ Guardian. Vurt was an SF novel that was really fresh and peculiar at a time when we were constantly being told that lots of SF novels were really fresh and peculiar, but they often weren’t' William Gibson.

Jeff Noon was the sound of post-rave. It's hard to recapture the sense of how strange and beguiling Vurt was when it came out. It was set in a phantasmagorical alternative Manchester in which humans mingled and mated with sentient dogs, robots, telepathic "shadows" and creatures from – or contaminated with – the titular "vurt", a parallel world that was some unspecified mix of consensual hallucination, virtual reality game and drug trip to which you gained entry by sucking on coloured feathers.

"As hip and breathless as William Gibson, but spiced with dark humor and the horrible realisation that Noon knows of what he writes....Vurt is passionate, distinctive, demanding and enthralling--first-time novelist Noon has started with a bang."--The London Times.

I liked this book!

It has a definite pulp feel and patterns after authors like Philip K. Dick and William Burroughs, writing about strange psychedelic experiences in surreal dystopian futures. In fact the writing is nowhere as good as either of those authors, and there are places where the narrative is scattered and loose. But overall it's a wonderful ride, one that doesn't come around very often.

Many elements of this strange story are unforgettably hallucinatory. The world the story takes place in is developed quite well. Finally, the story, in the end, could probably be read somewhat allegorically, and it is possible that there are intimations at deeper levels of purpose and symbolism than I am now aware of.

It's a fun, and moves fast, and is full of beauty and strangeness that, again, the combination-of is quite rare. I do recommend it, especially for fans of alternate-reality stories.

Not for everyone's taste I suppose, but the way Noon uses language is like an exquisitely crafted music box. I am a writer as well and Noon is one of the voices that inspire my deep love of words. It is like he is plugged directly into my brain, and knows all the right buttons to push. His plotting is wildly imaginative, perhaps too much so for the casual reader. But if you can let go of expectations and just enjoy the ride, you will probably like the places he goes.

This is a fun read for anyone interested in science fiction with unusual, weird plots. You won't read anything quite like this! It is one of those books that are hard to put down once you've started.

A fantastic story - full stop. the Sci-Fi setting is well put together, but the story itself really shines.

....You are younger (<16), you don't like reading about drug use, don't like cyber-punk-sci-fi-fanasy novels, don't like being simultaniously confused and enthralled, or didn't enjoy the original Alice in Wonderland story. This book is excellent, especially for people who love doing mental yoga and/or have a history of psychedelic use. Cheers
