I found this book without knowing much about Nick Harkaway, or what Guardian thinks about it, and so I feel I get to claim the discovery to myself. By diving in and out of the narrative, this book intertwines with perception to the extent that it was warping my own personal sense of reality outside of the book. To a point, GNOMON almost reads like a 22nd century Alice in Wonderland, but there is much more to it. To maximize the enjoyment, I believe this book deserves an unprepared reader, so pick it up, strap yourself in, and godspeed!
