This is my favorite book of all time. It wasn't the first time I listened to it because it was a little confusing with a lot of odd plot threads. The second time I listened to the book it was like looking at a silhouette of two heads looking at each other and seeing a white candlestick. I think I might have stolen that analogy from something else Douglas wrote. I will admit that I was listening to a different version that was abridged and that I didn't know that Samuel Taylor Coleridge never finished his poem Kubla Khan. That may be considered a slight spoiler, but I think he wrote the book thinking the reader should already know that.
But it all comes together, so so well. Re-listening to it I found all sorts of little clues in the details that I had glossed over and not paid attention to the first time.
Now on top of all that, the writing is so clever, well done and absolutely hilarious.
