Fascinating themes, but ultimately disappointing. The book contains an odd mixture of insight and cliche, especially in the characterizations, which makes for amusing reading. But ultimately, the whole thing bogs down and I'm beginning to wonder if it will ever end. Ultimately, I prefer Wolfe's nonfiction.
