    1. Da ne bude neke zabune ovde nema nikavog cyberpunka, sem pseudo ima neke igrice i nekog pisanja u nekom txt fajlu u nekom skrivenom folderu na poslu u radno vreme, ali nista od VR i RL se ne preplice pre je neki usputni lajt motiv za popunjavanje praznine u priciMale ali slabe pozajmice od Peljevina u satiricnoj kritici stanja i drustva cak jedno direktno pominjanje Generacije P kad junak tj autor nepotrebno postmoderno preterano nabraja ljude artikle i sve i svasta tj Nista na ulici i u prodavn [...]


    2. So this isn t really on the level of either book it mentions on the cover Fight Club or American Psycho There just really isn t as much depth to the characters any of them It is obviously influenced by video game culture, but in a very generic way I was especially disappointed by the sometimes bravado of the protagonist, when he expounds on complex social theories, but his lines of thought are never really than superficially examined or followed The action scenes were both unrealistic does no o [...]


    3.

    5. Very convincing description of current post soviet society After this introduction, the authors dropped to a fantasy They described the fight against all the evil around them, like in a computer games And of course they win in that game The reality in transition states is really ugly and you have the way to cope with it, someone with reading as me, someone with dreaming as the authors of this book Suggest for reading.



    6. It didn t hold my attention very well I often have difficulty with texts translated from Russian somehow they seem both edgy and stodgy at once The plot is pretty zany though.
