This book holds the record in my house for the fastest trip from buying to charity shop. It starts well, with the maths genius Texas wide boy, but collapses rapidly as the author runs out of ideas about 50 pages in. From then on it's move to new location, waffle for lots of pages, over and over again. Eventually I skipped a whole block, and little had happened. When I'd managed to get close to the end, I realised that apart from the tedium, it was one of the things I hate most in a book - the "hidden part one". You gradually realise that all this surely can't be tied up in the pages that are left - and indeed it can't. Now read pages from part two. Not a chance. I'm surprised at Tor wanting to publish this stuff.
