Not unreadable but painfully slow and empty. John Chapman's life story is boring. His existential crisis of why he is like he is and why he runs away is interesting and put in context of the time. But.. so boring in a way. The villain of the tale is not credible and I had nicknamed him "Jason" by the end. Nothing is solved at the end of the story, Chapman still likes men and has a live-in young lover but the world hasn't changed, it's still 1777 The author leaves everything in some kind of stasis after a explosive climax. A stasis that is not in any way believable or satisfying. Barely 2 stars.
