I like Giaman, but this book was underwhelming. It's one of the rare cases where the film is better than its source material. The language felt jarring at times and the story seemed to meander until it found it's way to an anticlimactic end. The ideas were quite good, but I think Giaman didn't develop them as well as he's done in other books.
On a side note: I've noticed that in the last two books I read. This one and And Then There Were None, the Kindle edition puts the Epilogue (containing major plot points) AFTER the advertisements and excerpts at the end of the book. This is terrible for many reasons, but mostly because one doesn't know one isn't finished reading until/unless you wade through all the advertisement dribble to get to the end. This should be fixed on these two books and any other book it occurs on.
