There is some interesting speculation about the nature of western civilization and the interaction of historical accidents with forces of human good and evil. While it was hard for me to take seriously when spoken by a blond Apollo (a literal Apollo) who carefully arranges his hair with one curl on his forehead, taken on its own it's worth reading.
The book has the feel of a screenplay in that there are long passages of dramatic physical descriptions that have no connection to the story. Characters are enveloped in ovals of blue light with lightning flashing inside. We never learn the source or meaning of these embellishments. You expect this sort of thing in a movie to give visual interest when silly things are happening, but I don't see the point in a book, at least in a book without illustrations. The reader can't see them, and they add nothing other than visual interest.
Overall, this book is too loaded down with plot for a good romance and too silly for a thriller. It works best as a historical meditation, but there are too many distracting elements and the writing is too wooden to be really successful.Read more ›
