Neuropath back to reviews
Shouldn't work, but does.
Neuropath is a book that shouldn't work. It has too much exposition and not much action for a large part of the book. The story is pretty much just a vehicle for the philosophical points the author is trying to make. It's rough around the edges.

But somehow, it does work. The characters are well drawn and the neuroscience is interesting. All that exposition? It makes you appreciate all the disturbing stuff that much more. While the book gets incredibly disturbing at times, it never stops being entertaining. And when the book is finished, it doesn't seem like some wild fantasy scenario anymore, but something that could happen right now, or in the very near future.

Be very afraid.
