Overall I liked the story and the characters. My only real issue with this book was the pacing. I didn't feel any rise and fall. I would've liked it more if the author had given breathing room at some points and more intensity at others. What I liked most about the book was the level of intricacy with which the author layered Gogol's character. He was rich and textured and kept me reading.
