For the first half this was an overly episodic journey through a decaying landscape. Once the protagonist reaches his destination, halfway through the book, it turns into a kind of paranoid conspiracy/identity story. Who can you trust? Who are you really? The set-up is interesting, but finding answers to those questions wasn't as urgent or compelling as it should have been as I didn't really care about any of the characters. Soem clever ideas, but lacking impact.
