But I didn't realize these things while reading the book because I was continually distracted by changes in structure and delivery. Another reviewer here commented on his trouble reading unpunctuated conversations. That's true in the later parts of the book, but in the early parts the usual indented & quoted style is used for conversations. And at a minimum, this novel should have been more carefully edited.
I also formed the impression that this book had been written in 3 or 4 separate sessions and that the seams between them were a little too visible. Either this book was written over several years and illustrates Mr. Bay's evolution as a writer - or he was pushing a deadline and just flat ran out of time to finish it in the manner he'd begun.
While I consider the book worth its price, the bottom line is that I won't be afraid to loan this book.
