Read in September, 2008
I liked it ... I didn't like it.
I went back and forth this way, my feeling and mood for the book shifting from chapter to chapter.
One one hand, his description of the main character's battle with dyslexia was first rate and eyeopening. Likewise, the discussions about separation of church and state, and of how church and state keep the masses in line with fear was awesome.
But then he ruins this when his characters react in a weird way to something, with no explanation; or a few parts that made me read a couple times to see what I missed due to incongruities.
Overall, I kept turning the pages ... and I guess I liked it enough ... but, well (shrug).
