I now have a new favorite writer. Foolscape is the first book of Michael Malone's that I have read,and if the rest are anything like it, I will have a delightful time exploring them, also.

This novel had a great opening of events and character progression, but soon found it fizzle as I followed the narrator with out his right hand man. Also the tone seemed to change in an awkward way that I felt didn't quite fit. It took me quite awhile to finish this book as I found myself losing touch with the characters and inevitably feigning interest.
