Helpful Score: 1

There are certainly some likeable aspects to this strange tale. Mr. Greer's wry humor and well-sketched characters are entertaining, to say nothing of the inventive nature of his protagonist's plight. Was it my imagination or did the author's ingenuity evident throughout fail him at the denouement? Too many times in telling their stories authors seemingly lose interest and/or their muse at the crucial resolution. This being the only negative in the midst of numerous positives, meet Max Tivoli, a man unlike any you're likely to encounter in or out of literature for quite some time.
