God, it goes on and on. I felt strongly that it needs some heavy editing - there's too much constant explication and summarising what the plot is; there are too many longeurs. Unlike so many of his other books that just draw you gently and surprisingly into a surreal world leaving you looking at the world differently; this one pushes you into it - the device of literally climbing a ladder into a new world isnt subtle as I wanted, plus you know it's going to happen. I expected better.
