I didn't like Swallow Me Whole at all ... why did I try to read this thing? Ug. Apparently I am not cut out for Powell's books, so I think I'm done trying. ( )

I think this requires a second read to get a handle on all of the themes surrounding militarism in the U.S. I'll definitely be picking up more of his work. ( )

Many interesting ideas underlying this story but disappointingly developed. ( )

A little chaotic and somewhat hard to follow but an interesting story on war and violence and our perceptions of justice. ( )

This book was ambitious and is brilliant in places but tries too hard to be different and loses the narrative. ( )
