This is not a good book
Reviewed in the United States on December 22, 2012
This book is a movie script. I could see a younger Brad Pitt in the lead role. Various Oscar nominees in brief, pointless scenes. Breathtaking stunts. And strangely, a mass of philosophical sputter about the state of the world and such.
When I bought this book I did not expect something remarkable. I simply bought it because I read the previous book and was looking for something similar, something to pour over my head before going to sleep. But I had not reached 50% when the durn thing started to keep me awake because of how...unenjoyable it is. Did I mention the complex layers of the various characters? No I guess I didn't...
