Very well-written, but not particularly interesting. The style is euphorious, all the time, but nothing to make is more lasting. There is too much sparkle, but no story.

After about 200 pages, I felt it was too long. The last 3 chapters are weak, as if the author is tying up loose strands, some of which appear out of nothing, such as Evan's green fingers. As a book written in 1998, it deals very unconvincingly with the issue of Aids; it more seems the author wanted to avoid it. ( )
