I should have followed my first instinct and given up on this one 10 pages into it. But then I read the reviews here and thought maybe it would improve. Which it did, for a bit, until a really unbelievably ridiculously stupid ending. For all the random themes packed into it - ghosts, slavery, adultery, child abuse, muscle cars, circus dwarves, writer's block and self-discovery, to name just a few - this book had nothing new or interesting to say. And why the obsession with insects? And did I mention the ending was absurd? The only reason I give this 2 stars is that I didn't mind the part in the middle when all the extraneous crap got left aside for the actual story.
