Found it described as a page turner, and I agree. The pace is steady though. The effect is to hold this book in the mind long enough to begin to care a good deal about the characters and their plight, which really is all of our plights though it might take a work of art to remind us of that.
'Dancing in the Dark' was not the song used to title the work, but as the characters move from ignorance to acceptance we are really with them every step of the way (at least I was). If you are like me, this book will strike a chord within you and will have you pondering the nature of life with the inevitability of death.
You might want to listen to Bill Evan's beautiful rendition of the Livingston/Evans tune, "Never Let Me Go', after you've finished the book.
