I find myself liking each Tim Powers novel less than the one before. This, his most recent novel, was a completely dispiriting read. The characters go nowhere and do virtually nothing.

Alcoholism is more prominent than in all of his previous novels combined. Worse, it's treated like an inevitable decline - why fight it? Just give up and pour yourself another drink. Worrisome, that.

I felt like the most interesting character was Matt. Pity that the entire plot hinges on him (it) being pushed off-stage as quickly as possible.
