İnanılmaz Destansı bir hikaye.
I finished this last night/this morning. I can't decide how I feel about it. When I tried to describe it to a friend today, I found myself thinking about it very dichotically. There's the first 300 pages, which are very much about forging a place for yourself in the world, about our blindspots and vulnerabilities (and about how well-read the author is--that's almost its own subplot). But when at about 300 pages, nothing much in terms of plot has happened, it goes into overdrive and it's goes movie-of-the-week with body count and intrigue and espionage. Wild ride, I'll give it that. Ultimately, I stormed the last 200 pages from 11 pm to 4 am because I could not put it down, and in the end, I got the breath sucked out of me. I did not expect to end up there, where the author took us. I was stunned like I'd been suckerpunched. So... I liked it very much. I didn't love it. By the last 200 (of 509) pages I was skimming the author's LOOK AT ME intrusions. After a time, they were just too much.
