The long introduction I just found wonderful. I would read a paragraph and put my Kindle down and drift off on the evocative prose and imagery. I did not want it to end. (One of the problems with the Single format is when you find a great read, it ends all too soon.)
And then he gets off the plane and it turned into an ordinary story for me. Yes, it was interesting, still pulled me along, but I felt abruptly disengaged from the sense of mystery and depth he had created. Maybe if I were a guy, it would have been less of a disconnect.
Still worthwhile, but more like two articles than one: a poetic essay followed by a more mundane story.
Maybe Broudy would disagree with, but this story seems part adventure -- like a Dan Brown story about a guy on some quest for an answer to an age old mystery and partially like a Michael Lewis study on a subject you may have heard but never really thought to explore in depth.
If you are looking for a quick read -- I'd say about an hour, maybe two (been a while) -- it's a good addition to your Kindle. What is this author going to explore next? I laugh with anticipation.
Ollie, please give me back my blue eye'd girl!
