Doc - Yeah. I felt the same way about the book.. Good characters and plot to keep you going, but unfortunately flat lannguage throughout, with the exceptions of a few short passages here and there, where it stretched toward the almost poetic. Almost.

Schwartz was a fantastically interesting character, however, as were a few others. All the main players, really.

I was annoyed for the first 50 pages or so at the cutesiness in the naming, but got used to it.

All in all, not a bad novel, but I really thirsted for some delicious language, and remained unslaked.
