Not quite up to snuff compared to his earlier masterpiece (I had high expectations!). It was a little harder to follow, a little more convoluted, and a little less satisfying, although I can't put my finger on why. The parallel plots with simultaneous flashbacks made it hard to read is short increments AND keep track of all the threads and characters at once. In the end I had to go back and spend an hour once I'd finished the book reviewing some key facts I'd forgotten to make all the ends tie up to my own satisfaction.

Lawrence Just finished this one.... I had similar feelings but could not put it down, regardless. What would you call his "earlier masterpiece?"

The first thing I read by him, and that made me commit to read every word he ever writes, was the Night's Dawn trilogy, starting with The Reality Dysfunction.
