Fowler has an intriguing topic. And a wisecracking verbal style, antic characters and events, and starting the narrative "in the middle" while delaying revelations that are critical for the plot did engage me at the outset. However, all three of these characteristics of the book were so unrelenting and excessive -- so forced -- that they started wearing on my patience about mid-book. Very interesting but not completely satisfying.
