Spiral - Paul McEuen Killer fungus and razor-blade-legged microbots. I'm pretty sure the preceding sentence fragment will clarify whether you would ever read this book. Now if you're in that subset of all readers who would read it, your mileage may vary. There's more nuance to the infodumping, less crazy-ass absurdity to the plotting, and some range past the second dimension in characters. . . but not a lot, not too little, and maybe 2.3d, respectively. Still, a fast, fairly fun read.
