did not like it
Read in November, 2009

I loved the premise, writing was good, but the protagonist was just so endlessly lame, making the dumbest decisions at every possible step...I actually sat up and read it most of the night, waiting for some reason why he acted as dumb as a post when he appeared to be an intelligent man. There never was one. If there was some literary or intellectual value in his story, I didn't see it. I smiled a few times, laughed once.
