I finished reading this book a few days ago and I still can't decide whether or not I actually enjoyed it. I know I liked the writing -- or at least I was impressed by the writing. But the characters were so over-the-top that it was impossible to become emotionally invested in the story.

This is the kind of book that should be studied in lit class so that students can marvel at the creative risks this author took (the structure is complex and unusual) and appreciate the literary merits of the work.
