For about the first 150 pages, I considered DNFing this novel But it slowly picked up While I still think the novel is too long by at least 100 pages, due to detailed descriptions of building architecture and what characters had for dinner I ended up giving it 3 1 2 stars The story came together, becoming quite interesting, and by the end, was exploring the possibility probability of a view spoiler multiverse hide spoiler One must remember this was written in 1980 I wonder if it s t For about the first 150 pages, I considered DNFing this novel But it slowly picked up While I still think the novel is too long by at least 100 pages, due to detailed descriptions of building architecture and what characters had for dinner I ended up giving it 3 1 2 stars The story came together, becoming quite interesting, and by the end, was exploring the possibility probability of a view spoiler multiverse hide sp
