This book is outdated. Dan Savage and his "boyfriend" got married in Seattle last month on the day same-sex marriage became legal.
By the way, this book has one of the worst first chapters I have ever read/listened to. It is so unpleasant to begin with an extended complaint about his "boyfriend's" faults.
Complex and involving. Very good. I don't agree with the calls for a boycott of the movie, because I found nothing objectionable to gay people in the book.
Even though my iPod Shuffle shuffled part of the story, I have enjoyed re-listening to parts I enjoyed the first time.
Performer does a very, very good job with a huge number of characters. Occasionally I get some of them confused, but I think he differentiates them well.
Maybe my expectations were too high after Fall of Giants, but I found this book disappointing. The characters seem predictable, and I know the history too well to be surprised.
