PopCo by Scarlett Thomas

PopCo - Scarlett Thomas

Definitely an intriguing story, though it seemed to be leading to something that it never got to. Some of the details* about code and math and video games got a bit trying, but it was quite difference from many contemporary fiction books. It was nice to see a woman author able to produce something more than chick lit! And something that was also anti-corporation, though the writing/story wasn't as strong for that part.
