liked it

The title which has attained a cult status over time is probably because of the time it came out at. With no other source of such precise and elaborate information one understands why this book garnered such praises. Audacious it is. But nothing more. The book teeters precariously between a wikipedia page and a novel, so much is it overloaded with facts and data. It simply fails to connect with the reader.
The odd bullet points interspersed through the novel are nothing but awkward. They add nothing to story nor to the feel of the book. Overall a major let down!!
