I had a hard time with this book at first, because the protagonist was such an insensitive jerk (to women), but then I realized that was sort of the point and he grew on me. This book is chock filled with gems. I think one of my favorites is the approach to the gnarly alien space station. I'd recommend buying the book for that scene alone. It's rare imagination.

Weird and wonderful. Writing is kind of manic, but characters and plot draw you in. I love Thuy and her Kiqqie(Homeless genius) friends. I think this one is a science fiction classic.
