Here is a hero character who was obsessed with manipulating and controlling even casual acquaintances. Why? Because he had no children, no family, no relatives, obvious justifications. Life to this hero became a game to satisfy his blooming impotence. He used himself as bait in traps that only he knew were being placed. This anarchist, naturally, had to make up the rules of the game as he went along.
The reader may have at least hoped for some finality to this charade of realistic cruelty. In the final pages the hero became trapped in a broken elevator that would forever run up and down, up and down. This would have offered a hellish, no exit ending, but alas, this was not allowed to occur.
