Honestly, I just borrowed this book because my options were limited but once I start reading I usually see it through. This book is pretty terrible. The concepts in the beginning are not that bad but by the end I felt like the author had attempted to mash one hundred concepts together into this story and barely explained but five of them. It's as if he woke up one morning and made a list of the most outlandish things he could put in a story and wrote it. I found the mysterious stranger with amnesia plot to be okay at first but as time goes on the plot gets more strange and more unexplained by the author. By chapter 35, I was wondering if he really thought I was supposed to buy this. I don't think he sold himself well to his readers in this book and I don't know why they published it. I would have sent him back to the drawing board to create something that didn't leave everything so bleak and mystifying. It's not scary when it's this absurd.
