Perhaps my opinion of this book was spoiled by just having watched Season 1 of Carnivale but I didn't understand why this book was so popular. The writing is OK, the story implausible. What I did enjoy was poetic justice of the ending and the story of the author herself -- how she got herself into the habit of writing by working as a techinical writer. So I congratulate her on her success. Not my favorite book but it's always nice to see a writer take a risk and do well.
