Okay, so this is a long book, and I just finished reading it after a couple days. It's worth it.
The writing is decent, the characters are somewhat realistic (both in behavior and abilities when compared to tabletop, if my puny 3rd Edition skills are right), if at a couple points overpowered.
It's a Shadowrun book. It's good quality, but it's not necessarily high art either. The setting's still good, and the writing's good, so it's still a good deal.
Pick it up.
