This was hard going at first and read more like a film script, but I stuck with it because when you and the writer have invested so much time its bad to give up . Did I enjoy it? No ,not really. Some folks might ….but for its genre I found it overlong, unoriginal and tedious. I guess I just didn't care for ANY of the characters either. I'd rather watch a Fellini film.
