I am now going to read Full Tilt and I am sure that this novel will be as good as, if not better than, Dark Star.

I really appreciate the way the book was written, because it flashed back it was like two stories in one. I do believe if this stort was told in chronological order it would have lost me. It was good to have the up and down ride with everett through the story.
That's what it's like reading this book. The basic story is good. The author's storytelling skills are creaky and his narrative voice feels too mannered for this.
