It's hard to believe that the same author who wrote Dracula penned this one. Unbelievably bad plotting, where otherwise interesting characters do astoundingly stupid and ridiculous things just so that the author can have the ending he wanted. Just silly.
Quite frankly, I stopped reading about 3/4 of the way through it. I just did not care for any of the characters and at no point did any of the ever so many plot lines pull me in. Life's too short and there are too many books.
It was just so great to read "new" Roger Zelazny prose again. I got this book when it came out, but I've been saving and saving it to read, delaying the last chance I'll have to read new words by my favourite author. Great read. All I can do is hope that somehow another lost ms will turn up.
