Immune System is the third installment of the Dewey Decimal Trilogy. Set mainly in the United States, this dystopian novel follows a man who is in cahoots with a corrupt mayor, living in the Chinese district of New York and is sent to protect a pair of Saudi royals. Nathan Larson’s writing style in this book is a lot like the style within Pygmy by Chuck Palahniuk—short and somewhat curt sentences that allow the complex and multi-level story to be easily understood and enjoyed. This book is definitely for anyone who enjoys the crude humor of Palahniuk and the fantastical storytelling of Orson Scott Card. –Barnabas
