Each story was interesting in its own right. But a little of one story is told, then another, then another, then back to part of another, and so on, with no segue or transition. All through, as a treader, I was trying to find the thing that tied the stories together, expecting some time traveler or library in a sci-fi setting to put all of the puzzle pieces together into one beautifully woven story or theme. But no. It's just a bunch of separate short stories, broken into pieces, and scattered through to make it big enough to be a novel. If there is something that ties these separate puzzles into one, I completely missed it. I think I would have rated all of the stories, except for the Puritan one, highly. But my expectation that they would tie together somehow left me feeling very disappointed at the end.
The narrators were wonderful.
