I would give this book a 1 star rating because the author at least put forth the effort to publish it. Why, I have no idea. Reading this book is like what I would imagine it to be if I went rafting through the underground sewer system of NYC - dark, randomly winding, and filled with foul putrid waste. The rare use of inspired language in this plotless 318 page monster were not enough to sustain any enjoyment of the book.

Matthew L. This book has to be one of my absolute favourites. I just love no non-linear and imaginative it is. What didn't you enjoy about it? I loved how BIG it was, everyone had a back story.
