Early Book - Great Reading but Poor Plot
I sure would and I have read the entire Roth Trilogy. They are an entirely different matter and are excellent both in performance and in substance.
It was a boring story and I definitely care about the protagonist. While you can have anti-heroic protagonists but you must have some plot hinge to make what happens to them matter.
The reader was excellent. In fact, the only motive I had to keep reading.
Try other Andrew Taylor books because he has developed since this first book and is now an outstanding writer.
