This book had the feel of an average movie where you have plot figured 10 mins in. The main character was so out of touch with reality. His weaknesses were glaring.

Very vanilla story. Guy works too much and is very stubborn in his drive. Almost breaks down before he realizes things have gotten out of hand. Note to self: don't be that guy.
