You may have to open your mind to let this book in, but I think you'll find it's worth it.
A man wakes up to find he has lost his memory. He starts to explore his previous life, and makes a mind-bending discovery - that he is hunted. By a shark. But not a physical one; a conceptual one.
He discovers that there are beasts in our world that feed off the waste of our ideas and thoughts. With the help of the enigmatic Scout, he makes a last stand against the shark.
There's an old-fashioned kind of adventure at the heart of this story, in fact the finale is almost plagiarized. But the inventiveness of the story, and of the way the book is printed (there are all kinds of text artworks/clues scattered through it) makes this a one of a kind.
