I'm about to start reading Nina De La Mer's 4 A.M. (yes as in the Orca / Pure White tune).

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/0956 ... 0956559956

"Set on a British army base and in the anarchic club scene of '90s Hamburg"

Not heard of that one, sounds good.

A few of my raving mates were squaddies and the introduction of CDT in the early 90s meant they either stopped raving (a few) or got out of the army (the majority)!

easily one of my favourite books. the other two from the sprawl trilogy are worth a read

It's called a "graphic novel" and don't worry, you're in good company! ;)
