The strange dialogue is a highlight. Not only do characters say very shocking, inappropriate things to authority figures, even the authority figures say shocking, inappropriate things. (Priests, psychiatrists.)
The novel doesn't really hold together well. It's split into halves, one for each main character. The two main characters don't interact. Even within a half, the story is episodic; there isn't much of an overall plot, as far as I remember.
I think the author should comb through this book looking for interesting pieces to harvest and reuse in some other form. Unfortunately, the publisher might own the copyright. Oh well.
This book is more in line with "The Fly Must Die" and "Fever 42" than with "Eternal Bliss" and "The Lyssa Syndrome."
Disclaimer: It's been a *long* time since I read this book. I'll probably revise this review if I re-read the book.
