    One thought on “The Nervous System”

    1. There’s nothing I love more than good Noir. Well, maybe sex. And of course, my wife and kid. And then pizza ranks pretty high up there, too… but whatever, you know what I’m saying. To me, Noir is the crème-de-la-crème of the mystery/crime genre. And whenever an author can combine Noir and some other genre I love into a devil’s brew of literary deliciosity, well then that’s just the cherry on top of my ice cream sunday.That’s why I was so enthralled with Nathan Larson’s The Nervou [...]

    2. [Reprinted from the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography (cclapcenter). I am the original author of this essay, as well as the owner of CCLaP; it is not being reprinted illegally.]I know, I know, you haven't been seeing very many reviews this year from our buddies at Akashic Books, which is because they simply haven't been sending very many books this year; and that's a shame, because it seems like every time I pick a new one up by them, at the very least it's still okay but much more o [...]

    3. the 2nd installment of dewey's beefs with the powers that be in a ruined nyc. dewey has a past, but he just can't remember it very well, but one aspect of it has made him a mad mad badass killer, with very little compunction to the whys or whos of those destined for his bullet in their face. this makes him both popular with the corrupt leaders and corrupt mafia and corrupt military etc. and alls dewey wants to do is reorganize the main branch of nypl, if they'll let him. written in both a funny/ [...]

    4. Post-apocalyptic social meltdown, an anti-hero main character with memory loss who survives by his wits, paramilitary bad guys, a corrupt Bible-spouting politician, an off-the-grid computer genius, and a double mystery: The 20 year old brutal murder of a young Korean woman and her infant, and the resurfacing of repressed memories – much of this plot may sound derivative. What I love about this book is that author Nathan Larson is able to re-assemble these threads into a story that feels fresh. [...]

    5. When I think Dewey Decimal I think of the warm embrace of books in a cozy library. Bright sunny windows. Comforting books. Maybe a cat. This isn't that Dewey Decimal. This Dewey Decimal is a highly skilled but deeply damaged warrior, a veteran of war and a victim of military experimentation, making his way through a New York City that has been debilitated by a series of terrorist bombs. There is a library. Dewey makes his home in the large cold hulk of the abandoned New York City main branch. Hi [...]

    6. The Nervous System is Nathan Larson's second installment of the Dewey Decimal series. Even more amped up than the first book, The Nervous System is the next logical step in the right direction. Larson's taken a turn though with Decimal. I'm not sure how to say this but he's just more ghetto as a character. I don't remember him like this in the first novel. Sometimes it comes off as tongue in cheek and other times I can't make sense of Larson's intent. The net--check this series out. It's worth t [...]

    7. This follow-up to Larson’s 2011 debut novel, The Dewey Decimal System, takes us back to near-future NYC and the madcap life of the eponymous Dewey Decimal. With events from his past still spotty, Dewey operates as muscle for various politicians, stumbling through the ruins of the city and just barely surviving one event after the next. Another great installment in this young series, perfect for fans of Josh Bazell and Ken Bruen.

    8. First of all, if you’re thinking this is about books, you would be wrong; Dewey Decimal is an amnesiac soldier that has taken up residence at the New York Public Library. Akashic Books has a well-received selection of Noir Books and this could be considered Dystopian Noir. It’s a very bleak but exciting story.Free Review Copy.

    9. "Listen here; I fear no man, save myself."p. 59"*We* don't try to move in on each other's territories, sir, or poach each other's property; we're not like the Italians or the Russians, killing each other, lying to each other. This is a life thing, and a true family. The Sicilian thing, they're vain, spoiled children."p. 115

    10. Not my cup o tea. But as a dystopian novel about a guy with severe OCD in a NYC that would barely qualify as third world, I guess it's okay. I expected this to be a post-apocalyptic novel with some hope and a touch of humanity at least as an undercurrent. This just seemed crazy and dark.
