Poor narration and not one of Seymour's best

Not one of GS's best books and the narrator's style doesn't help. He doesn't leave a pause when the story moves from one plot line to another which can be confusing. The daftest little niggle was casevac, should be pronounced cas-e-vac not like some form of Hoover for a portmanteau!
If you want the author at his best try Vagabond instead.
