This is one of those odd times where I'm not sure whether to give 2 stars or 4. So I'll give 3. I blasted right through, the pace was just right (being on an airplane may have helped, but some books don't grab me even when trapped in the lower stratosphere). I liked the shady nature of many of the characters and the ending, yet somehow I was also left a bit cold at the end.

This book is a pure creature of the 1970s as far as its concerns and worldview.

I may give Vidal another read.
