While on the longer side, once you are in, you will FLY through this novel. Hayes does an excellent job of maintaining and building momentum, while keeping his pacing consistent and even. What I enjoyed most is that Hayes writes for the smart reader - the type of person who doesn't want everything explained but enjoys well-thought out details. With each chapter, you almost feel like part of the story, tagging along on Pilgrim's coattails as he races around the world.
Oh, and the characters! Pilgrim is by far one of the best protagonists I've encountered - clever, witty, self-deprecating, but all in a way that makes you wish you could go grab a drink together.
There is so much that I enjoyed about this novel but don't want to give away.... Needless to say, friends- please go and pick up a copy ASAP so we can discuss.

The road had many trees, perfect places for an ambush, much like the ambush he experienced those many years ago on a similar street, several worlds away. Each car he passed provided an opportunity for an enemy to hide. His senses at a fever pitch, he passed an old sidewalk bench, littered with newspapers, trash and what appeared to be a homeless guy. Off to the West, a dog barked. As he made his way ever closer, he passed under a burned out street light, made all the darker because of the moonless sky.As he closed on his destination, a turn of the century, a nouveau rich establishment that had seen its better days, he thought back to the mother he never knew. "Enough of that, focus on the prize!" he thought. Oh what he wouldn't give for some sleep. As he..."
You get the idea. I enjoy fleshing out a character or filling in a story, but when NONE of the filler pertains to the story, theme or intrigue, it's just noise.
Having said that, I did read the whole book, interested and curious enough to look forward to reading it regularly.
