Enjoyed the thought provoking collection of different characters' experiences and beliefs. Dense and complex plot that changes direction frequently from different perspectives and time lines.

Not as engrossing as Doctorow's previous works. For those who like the enmeshing of religion and the evolving prose of Doctorow's style, maybe worth a read. But this book is nowhere as engrossing as Doctorow's "Billy Bathgate," and I would wholly recommend that book over this one. Characters in this book are not as riveting or seem as fully fleshed out.
