(from Salmonella Men on Planet Porno)
Expecting the worst, we’d brought blankets with us. The others went to sleep, but I had to drive on through the night. If I thought we’d be stationary for a while, I’d rest my head on the steering wheel and take a nap. Then, when the traffic started moving again, I’d be woken by the driver behind me blowing his horn. With so much congestion, at least there was no fear of causing a major accident. Everyone was falling asleep at the wheel; the worst that could happen was a minor bump from behind.
The first couple pages were annoyingly familiar: OMG society, you make me so angry and disconnected! Then things got awesomely weird. Crazy weird, with people just going nuts for no reason. I don’t wanna spoil it, but there’s a real The Happening vibe at one point. And then the end — it’s just so striking and sick and messed up. How meaningful it all is is up for debate. If nothing else, it’s certainly unforgettable.
