D'Souza crafts an engaging tale with a protagonist who is somehow both sympathetic and abhorrent, yet the plot and characters still fall flat. Characters other than the narrator remain relatively undeveloped, the ending is ambiguous (and not in the good way), and if it was any longer, I'd feel like I had just wasted my time reading it. That said, I liked D'Souza's style. The prose was readable and the dialogue was relatively believable. If you're looking for something to spend a few hours with that won't leave you pondering the meaning of life or the true essence human condition, you could do worse than Mule.
