Memory just drags. I was constantly trying to figure out what the mystery was. After finding out what the mystery was and that it's solution (which is horrendously boring in comparison to the one that I had in mind) I felt cheated by the book. I'd suffered through it hoping to get an interesting ending as a reward and in the end I didn't get one.

All in all, it's the story of a guy trying to get back the memory and personality of a person who I didn't feel any real connection with. And I didn't really feel connected to the guy he had become. Perhaps an tale of growing up...

Perhaps a re-reading would serve it better justice.
