Ted's Review said:
I have mixed feelings about this book. Although it kept my attention, it was taxing to keep all of the story lines and characters straight because Walter jumps around in time (quite common) and takes a million detours with his characters. It’s one of those books you think you should take notes along the way. Also, the ending seemed rushed. Walter states that it took 15 years for him to write this book. Perhaps he didn’t want to take another 3 or four years to come up with a better ending. I’ll rate this book a B.
