Beginning with the threat of the Y2K disaster. Amsterdam takes on a journey through a world that is quickly deteriorating. We catch glimpses of this world every few years as we follow our narrator on his incredible journey through a world that quickly becomes unrecognizable. The thing that stopped me from enjoying more is that we never get to really learn about what is happening, what has happened and why. We simply drift in and out of the narrator's life catching only pieces of the world. Is the purpose suppose to be make us think and wonder and guess at what is happening? To force us to become a part of the story by filling in the blanks? Or is it laziness on part of the author. . . a way for him to create a world without having to put in the effort of actually creating it?
