5.0

This is a hilarious, creepy, brilliantly written book. Reminiscent of Nabokov in its hall-of-mirrors approach to reality, the prose is rich and inventive. I found myself reading it slowly, savoring each sentence. (A habit got into while reading Nabokov, Theroux, and a few other writers who craft sentences so beautiful they are worth tasting over and over.)
