Lucas A barely-captivating tale of mostly unlikeable psychoanalysts. What little drama was imparted in the novel was somehow drained of vitality by clinical treatment. The most engaging characters held small and fleeting roles. People who wear sweaters over their shoulders and tied loosely across their chests while sipping California wine and talking about silicon valley stocks may find it funny, at times. But if justice, by chance, strikes back at them, the frat boys from Animal House will have the last laugh.
