Review by fgaine
Through a constant fight of religion versus philosophy and reason versus belief, a fairly linearand uneventful plot unravels through a set of characters, all of them more or less unattractive or despicable in their own way. This is the work of a highly intelligent mind who could use is knowledge, his awareness of his own mental illness and his mastery of writing to serve an extremely compelling read that leaves you more open to the great existential questions of the human race.
