Reading it now and loving it. Starting chapter four and will finish it today hopefully. So far it's got a little of everything. Trek was always replete with surprise endings, not as twisted as TZ but enough of a bang for the buck payoff that revealed the writer's metaphysical leanings. TOS climaxed at every break usually with a sharp minor chord in a first inversion. Like Prokofiev's ending to the second movement of his fifth symphony.
