I totally understand what the last two reviewers are talking about. If you've never read Ellroy, know that he is an aquired taste. It's almost like he's proud of his hip, unique writing style and wants to impress you, however the prose is clunky and completely gets in the way. It's not that I don't "get" Ellroy, it's more like I don't want to sift through his murky lingo, I want to be entertained by a great story. Even the great Scott Brick, a master, could not keep me there more than an hour. Move on to something else.
