Read from October 29 to 31, 2010

It's hard to decide my feelings on this one. It has a lot to like but it also seems a bit conflicted. The narrative is all jumbled up...which feels like a bit of a cheat since YOU are the narrator. Sometimes the story feels like a parody of hard-boiled detectives (the lead is Philip M. Noir), sometimes an homage. That unevenness makes it hard to solidify an opinion one way or another.
