This book pulled me in with the first chapter. The style was refreshing and fun to read, however, I found that it didn't sustain throughout the whole book. Or, rather, the style sustained, but the freshness fell away and began to impede the story as I was really aware of the stylistic tricks in the language of the book. I'm speaking here of the very long sentences with many clauses linked by the word "and", as well as the sometimes esoteric shifts in time and the fragmented story lines. I don't need my books to be linear and clear-cut, but I felt that this book strayed too often in different directions and never spent enough time in any one significant spot to really develop the story fully.
I gave it three stars because there are some really great parts that I did enjoy. If I think of the book as merely fragments of character then I like it a bit more than if I imagine it as a cohesive book. I love books that cast wide nets with lots of characters and story lines, but I recognize that it's a hard thing to reign in and keep control of and I think it got away from Moore here a bit too often.
All in all, I found my mind wandering away from the book too many times while I was reading it, just unable to be captured by what was happening on the page. I think I would give Moore another shot though. Maybe try one of her short story books as it seems she would be good at writing short stories.
