I will not assign any rating to this book because either I failed it or it failed me, I'm not sure which. It seemed to me that Booth was trying to tell five or six stories at once, none of them successfully. I applaud his attempt but for me it just didn't work. I very quickly lost interest in what was happening (or had happened or might have happened) to the protagonist. I finally stopped at Chapter 12 and went back to the beginning to get my bearings, skipping ahead, trying to pick up the threads, continued along for another hundred pages, got lost again and finally gave up altogether.
As I say, the failing may have been mine. Sorry, Mr. Booth but I have other things I want to read.
