Disappointing Descent Into Narcissism
I really respect his other books - The Past Is A Foreign Country and Involuntary Witness - which to my mind expand the scope of the genre with unconventional characters and situations. I highly recommend both of them. This book, however, presents conventional characters and situations, missing any and every opportunity to surprise the reader. Maybe it is an early effort in which he was learning his trade. I found the narrator unlikeable and narcissistic, and the plot unremarkable.
