This is a sort of uneven read -- there are parts that are thrilling and fascinating, but long sections that are quite dry. The book focuses on a relatively large number of individuals, and I'm not sure that even a book of this length can devote enough space to each one to fix them all in the reader's mind. Several stuck out and as the book circled back to them, I was happy to see their threads picked back up, but there were a few who I kept having to refer back to remember who they were. Something about the breakneck speed of the book also dampens the drama, too.
