3.5 stars. I felt the writing style and format were 5 stars, truly fabulous. Vandermeer writes with originality, flair, and is not afraid to be unique. This was a tough read for me, I found it difficult to make it through many parts of it. It is a true testament to how great Vandermeer can make things so exceptional that I was ablebto push through the slow, stagnate parts that left me wanting. Being that this is an Afterword, much of the book rambles on and stops the story line from moving forward. I absolutely loved all of Duncans wise cracks, rebuttals, and story filler. Ambergris is well imagined and a place that I wish that I could see. I will read on in this series but it does seem to be work at times.
