Lexicon by Max Barry


"She didn't know. She had no idea. She was just curious."

They say the pen is mightier than the sword, but what if words could kill? This latest offering from Max Barry infuses reading with additional powers and makes for compelling reading. Non stop action abounds, hand in hand with more cerebral musings, particularly on the insidious nature of data capture over social networks.
While I have read another one of this author's novels before, Syrup,  and loved it, I was prompted to invest in this story after reading a glowing recommendation from comedian Wil Anderson. Quite amusing when one of the characters is, funnily enough, called Wil.
I don't know how much more I can add to the wealth of glowing reviews out there for this novel, but I read it pretty much in one sitting and loved it. Suspense, conspiracy, mind altering words and Broken Hill - buckle in for just about anything goes!  5 out of 5 - what's your favourite colour?
