Deeper than it first seems.

by Mike D on Jul 7, 2011

It is a metaphysical, phantasmagoric, paradoxical novel. Every English major should read it.



by Chiroptera on Feb 26, 2009

This book starts out with the promise of an excellent spy thriller. Unfortunately, it doesn't take long for it to descend into farcical tomfoolery. The genre I'd assign this book to is magical realism (if that's a legitimate category), and while there is indeed some obvious Christian symbolism, the bulk of the novel is spent in slightly humorous British dialogue and rather childish bumbling around. Think of "Get Smart" without Agent 99.
