Constantly frustrated by your boring viewpoint characters your secondary ones tend to be so much interesting your constant practice of leaving out the 'good bits' of the story only to refer to them if at all obliuely and second hand later and your monomaniacal need to make every story a goddamn puzzle But I keep coming back for keep hoping this time it will be different and I'll get the full experience be completely immersed not just find a few excellent bits and flounder amongst the rest I know it's not you it's me I'm just not a good enough reader for youbut dammit I can't stop tryingSo here we are with The Fifth Head of Cerberus I will admit right off that even the title of this one confuses me One thing to note if you don’t want a bunch of mysteries ruined before you even start and you have the SF Masterworks edition I read then don’t read the frickin’ introduction Damn I hate it when they write intr
