It pains me to say, as a reader who counts Pattern Recognition among his favorite books, that every chapter I managed to get through was a painful slog. Maybe there is a plot that will be revealed eventually. Maybe all the made up future song will make sense. Maybe characters will emerge that you will care about. I couldn't endure long enough. I had to give up in frustration. Perhaps it is meant to be a TV script instead and would make more sense with the visuals.
