Anyone who enjoyed The Day After or otherwise needs some additional motivation to leap off a building.
75% of this book is an elongated dissertation of torture, humiliation and needless violence, contributing little or nothing to the story arc itself. The first and last parts of the story would have been a good story alone. One can only assume an editor talked a writer into expanding a short story into a novel. A writer with no sense of humor and a penchant for poking puppies and kittens with a stick.
For me, the Doctor represents the best combination of intelligence, wit and compassion. This novel references none of those admirable qualities.
