A well crafted novel. I might even be persuaded to call it brilliantly crafted. Unfortunately the reader never forgets the "craft" element because the story itself, in-spite of pitch perfect narration from Richard Morant, felt contrived and ultimately pointless.The main character while witty and intelligent, is somewhat soulless and ultimately a bore. The "real reason" revealed at the end of the book for the quite drastic actions taken by one of the characters are too feeble to be convincing. Ditto the rest of the characters. You come off feeling you couldn't care less about the mysteries behind their actions.I gave it three stars for craft and narration, where the book does somewhat better.
