Recommended for: students of philosophy

I can't fault his cleverness in setting up the plot, but the style of writing is not really for me. I am having a hard time figuring out who these characters are, and the dialogue and prose seem kind of strained, making it hard for me to read. I have noticed this in other stories by Watts as well. I've gotten a little over halfway through and I think it's time to give up on this.
