As it is, though, it's simply not worth the effort it demands/5(). Gnomon is an incredible page novel. The trouble, of course, is that it's actually about pages long.

To be fair to the author, some of that is by intent - if a major theme of your text is information overload, then it makes some sense to overload the reader with a bunch of indecipherable--and irrelevant--information/5().

A dazzling, panoramic achievement, and Nick Harkaway's most brilliant work to date, Gnomon is peerless and profound, captivating and irreverent, as it pierces through strata of reality and consciousness, and illuminates how to set a mind free.

It is a truly accomplished novel from a mind possessing a matchless wit infused with a deep humanity. The stories are unpacked into Neith's mind as an alalogy of to you reading the story and then thinking about it, and it taking hold and rewriting some parts of your mind.

The same goes for Gnomon which takes a person and absorbs it, so you absorb a story and it becomes part of you and you become greater because of it.

In surveying, a gnomon is a set square used to mark right angles on a chart. “By extension,” writes the genre-hopping British novelist Harkaway (Tigerman,etc.), “it means something perpendicular to everything else, such as the upright part of a sundial.” It is different from its surroundings, and so is everything that police.
