Starts great then tails off.,
This review is from: Mockingbird (S.F. MASTERWORKS) (Paperback)
I had a strange experience with this book.
My first copy had approximately 70 pages missing. I was thoroughly enjoying the book until I reached page 84 and then it skipped to something like page 150. Damn! So I ordered a new copy, checked the print and started reading again from the beginning. However, coincidentally, the book really sags at roughly page 80 (as another reader has noted) and never really recovers.
The first section is very well done but beyond that you find yourself simply following a step-by-step narrative that is just dull to read...."I did this, then I did this, then I remembered I had read such-and-such and so I did this. Later on I did this....".
Shame really, probably would have made a great short story.
