really liked it

Well, huh. This definitely was an interesting read. Strange is a word I'd use to describe the actual plot. Dead on is how I'd describe the narration (though I suppose it would be rather tongue in cheek of me to do so).

The voice of the work I'm in love with and hence, the star rating. There were parts I laughed out loud at, which is somewhat rare. But Mr. Thewlis definitely created a living breathing person in Hector Kipling, and to a varied extent, the other cast of characters.

I wasn't as enamored by the pacing, which felt too fast at times and not fast enough at others (though, I admit, this could be as designed considering the first person pov and the progression of the character himself).

I'm glad to have read this, though, and look forward to anything else he writes.
