3.0 out of 5 stars Is it worth it?, Sept. 10 2012
A common thread to the previous reviews seems to be the length and detail of the first two-thirds of the book; the author's penchant for detail and literary references is exhaustive (positive and negative). Yes, it does take a turn for the dramatic when the murder of a central character occurs; you think "aha, now it gets good...getting through the first part of the book was worth it!" However, I found the end rather unsatisfying, and incomplete. The book is very much about style. Hopefully we'll see another from the author - with more substance.
