it was ok

Well, this could have been good, but it wasn't.
There was a lot of potencial, West doing eugenics and selfimprovement, or the narrator turning out one of his creatures. But we got nothing of that. Only casual racism, repetitions (YES we now know you know him since school and YES we understood he is blue eyed and blonde and pale) and a weak ending. Only the linguistic pathos is nice.
Short read, therefore okay, but not really worth the time.
