Adam Sternbergh returns with his Spadman series of novels. Near Enemy is book 2 in the series. If you haven read book 1: shovel ready, you will want to read that one first.
Spademan is a garbage man turned killer. armed with a boxknife, he continues his quest in this book.
I loved book 1 but i felt that book 2 didnt have as much heart as book 1. the plot seemed pointless to me for most of it.
In the spademan books, this is a apocalyptic world where the world had been almost destroyed and most people go into a plugged in dream world. this book it is revealed that there are hackers who hack peoples dreams and kill the people in their dreams. Spademan must find out how to stop them.
Again, it was an interesting read that was not horrible and is readable, but it lacked heart and soul. if you read book 1, you might as well read book 2, it is a quick and easy read.
I recieved this book for free from bloggingforbooks.com
