I am beginning to wonder if he is getting a bit of dementia or something lol. I have put the book down. It is sorta like eating soggy cornflakes...still has a bit of flavour but very hard to swallow.
I always say that he preaches to his readers and in this book he does that a lot. Every action of the characters had to be psychoanalized to the nth degree. They couldn't pour a cup of coffee without him explaining the reason behind the action....past history, thoughts on the mores of society and so on. A writer does not need to do this if he has good character development. The reader can figure this stuff out on his own. The book should have been titled "Stock characters gone wild".
If he didn't psychoanalyze his characters this book would've been around 50 pages.
