I thought this was a very good book. I had read Rule of the Bone and thought the same of it. Mr Banks isn't going to write a feel good story I'm convinced but his books leave you impressed.

A powerful,disturbing study in moral "drift" confusion and uncertainty." San Francisco Examiner-Chronicle

Awful. I was tempted to quit reading because Bob, the main character, is such a weak character. I hope this is not "the great American novel" that some think it is, or life in America is shallow, meaningless, and ugly.

This book had good reviews, and it was well-written; however, the characters were unappealing to me.
