I know a lot of people who would probably really like this book, but it actually left me not quite satisfied. I really liked the premise of the book; it was just the execution, and the ultimate resolution, that bugged me. I don't want to say too much so that I don't give the end away to those who might read it, but I will say that I think the author copped out of a potentially really strong ending. I do applaud him for trying to do it creatively, but I just didn't buy it.
As for the rest of the book...
I thought that once the author introduced Michael (the stranger mentioned on the inside cover), the story really picked up. The path to redemption made for the lead character was really touching, especially the pieces with him and his daughter. And it was in this section that I felt the dialogue and the overall story flowed most smoothly. (To me, dialogue is often the most important and interesting part of the story.) If the whole book had been written with this same style, I think I would have enjoyed it more.
