really liked it
bookshelves: fiction

Most of what I liked about this was the way the primary characters are written. They’re normal people with a very inflated sense of self, and extreme ambition, which presents differently for each of them. They’re jerks, but I think why this worked for me is that for the most part, you learn more about the characters from the chapters they narrate than you do from the chapters the others narrate. I do think it could have been 20-25% shorter without missing anything, though.
