Frederiksen as the main character, since he does little of significance until the very end. Instead, he spends most of the book running and hiding, and there's very little thrill in this chase since his trackers are seldom close enough or dangerous enough to really engage the reader. Anderson had a good enough idea for this book, showing how a rebellious young man of privilege could join forces with a working-class visionary to shake up the establishment, but he took far too long to get his story started, and by the time things really got moving, it was nearly ended. It's hard to believe that the average reader will even finish this book, let alone enjoy it.
Unfortunately, the dialogue in this book is so poorly written as to make the book unreadable. In fact, I couldn't finish it. I tried but I just had to give up. I'm not sure what effect Anderson was trying to achieve but it didn't work.
This is one for the trash bin.
