It features short vignettes of Doctor Pi, sort of a nerdy James Bond man of mystery with a penchant for brunettes. Maybe there is some literary reference I'm missing, but I couldn't even finish this. There was no draw, no pull that made me want to learn more or see where it was headed. In fact, because of the short (a few paragraphs) sections, it was puzzling to try and see if they were linked, and if so, what that meant in terms of a story. I really didn't want to work that hard.
I may keep it around and try another time...but really, given how short the book is (maybe 1/4" thick?) there wasn't much room for it to improve if it was going to. Just not my thing, and it feels pretty good to admit it!
