Maybe it was the fact that it as written a while ago, but there is little in this book that hasn't been written elsewhere in a more interesting manner recently. It was just kind of stale.
The book did start a little slow - description and reviews set high expectations - but the quality of the writing, and of the narration really paid off. The combination of different accents by the narrator, intriguing plot development, delicious philosophical nuances and an intriguing twist at the end made for a thought-provoking but not pretentious work of literature.
