Crowley's prose is as beautiful as ever, but something I can't quite define about this coda bothers me. Perhaps it's how it's so much Pierce's story (Rosie and Sam have vanished into their own happy endings). Perhaps it's how oddly solipsic Pierce is, despite his wide-ranging mind. On the first read, anyway, it's the least satisfying of the quartet.

From another writer it would still be a four or five, because of the gorgeous prose, the gorgeous structures of thought, but it's John Crowley; I expect more.
