I don't know if it's fair for me to judge this novel as I couldn't finish it.. but saying that should sum up how I felt and still feel about this book. This is my first Tad Williams novel and I'm annoyed as this has put me off reading anything else by him and I've heard 'The Dragonbone Chair trilogy' is awesome!
For me this book was a snooze fest throughout, I didn't like the writing, I didn't care for Bobby Dollar or anyone else for that matter. I hate leaving novels incomplete, I really tried I swear! I made it about half way through and kept eyeing up Dan Brown's 'Angels & Demons' sitting on my side table and decided to leave this unfulfilling relationship (or fling) and move on to bigger and better things.
Great decision by me *pats self on back*
I would save the hours it takes to read this and just rent Constantine *drops mic*

Quite a fast-paced book that kept me turning the pages - surprisingly, because I've only read the 'Otherland' series from him so far, which was rather lengthy. The main protagonist, supposedly an angel fighting on the Good side, investigates the disappearance of souls. His very un-angel-like behaviour is not very consistent with the premise of the book, but a very good read anyway.
