Review: The Invisibles, Vol. 1: Say You Want a Revolution (The Invisibles #1)

User Review  - Jim - Goodreads

Mind-bending sci-fi greatness from a guy who's a master of just that. Bizarre, intriguing, and thick with lots of cultural and literary references, this is a great start to a series despite getting a little self-indulgent at times. I'll definitely be checking out the rest of the series. Read full review
