OK, so distracted by the centaur-with-lyre on the cover and the narrator's Zelazny-style banter (yes, I'm on a Zelazny clone kick) I was expecting an entirely different book. If I'd remembered that my favorite WJW book is Aristoi and that Aristoi is, among other things, a meditation on the ennui of the nearly-immortal and almost-all-powerful, I would have been better prepared. Only maybe not, because Aristoi tarted that meditation up with all sorts of whiz-bang action and skullduggery and 'splodey, whereas this one is kind of slow and sad.I don't like it as much, but it might be the better book.
