I like it. I like to read more than bolter born. The philosophical thoughts and conversations if nothing else just show me the writer is actually very good and accomplished at writing and putting more complex literary ideas and concepts down. It's where other authors like Ben Counter and James Swallow fall short for me. Everything with them is just very obvious, blunt and uninspired. Any time they try to go for more complex or idiosyncratic ideas etc, they just don't pull it off.
