Killing Time by Elleby Harper
This is another one of those books that you love to hate. You start reading it in the afternoon and stay up all night to finish. The people that I had an appointment with the next morning were somewhat less than impressed at my sleepy demeanour. But it was worth it. A great read.
One of the many gems from the book. "Kristian hit Times Square and let himself drift along 47th Street towards the motel. The consumerist theme park's blinking neon signs enticed him to spend money."
