So, ignoring the troll (and if admitting to insulting regulars here and passing it off with a lol isn't trolling, what is?)...

This was a frustrating book. It took forever to get moving; I was nearly halfway through it before it actually got me interested, and the payoff never really came. For instance, at one point there's a page or so from one particular POV that never gets revisited, even when it really should. It seems to be there mainly to explain what otherwise would seem arbitrary.

Dunno whether the book needed some Andy or some Marco or both, but something was definitely missing.
It needed Andy to keep the characterization in line. It needed Marco to help deal with the repetitiveness there was in a lot of places. It needed Andy and Macro to make it a better book.

I am 220 pages into the book, I am about to give up. Can someone please tell me what happens
I hope not. I'm about 2/3rds done and I do not want to read then ending before I get there.
