it was ok

I don't mind non-linear narratives but the author seemed to be working so hard at making the book clever that the inner life of the characters was sacrificed. One of the reasons I read novels is to feel immersed in a character, so this book was a disappointment. I felt I was always on the outside, and got bored. Skimmed the last half.
