I was fascinated by the premise of the novel, and I'd read 'Snow Falling on Cedars' years ago, so I gave it a whirl.

But as a great premise (the modern re-interpreting of 'Oedipus Rex'), this isn't a great novel.

As my review title suggests, it's an endless stream of 'And then this happens, and then this happens, and then this...and this...and this...'

There are some nicely turned scenes. But all-in-all, there's a real lacking of narrative oomph. It's all done cleverly enough, but the style, the execution just doesn't add up to much.

It's neither this nor that, neither tragedy nor comedy...not even a good satire.

A swing...and a miss.

Personal rating: 7/10
