I must admit that I was disappointed in this book. None of the characters managed to size me - and there were too many to really get into each one of them, even in a book this long it weakens the character building to have 7 different characters' point of view - actually most of them irritated me immensely with their self-absorbedness and I am so glad I don't live in New York if life is like that there. The only reason I kept reading was to get the description of 9-11 and even that failed to touch me.
