The story is narrated in Cameron's entertaining, sarcastic voice. I never found him entirely believable, as a character. He is obviously smart, but I wanted to understand why he was so lacking in ambition and so detached from care for anyone or any thing. The story moves along at a fast clip, keeping the reader slightly off-balance. Is Cameron dreaming? Is he experiencing multiple dimensions of reality - or is it dementia?
It's a playful romp, layered with social commentary, pop culture and literary references. The open ending suits the storyline. Many aspects of this upbeat, superficially philosophical book reminded me of Douglas Coupland's Generation A. It is quite different - and to my mind better - than Bray's 19th century Gemma Doyle series. Grade 9 - up.
