Just finished reading This book was amazing. Wasn t as thrilled about this book as some of his others It was interesting but hard to follow at times. Everyone has a strange life, because life is so strange. If you ve been reading my reviews over the past few years, then you may have picked up on the fact that I have a soft spot for stage magicians So of course when I saw this on the library shelf next to Whale Music, I knew I would have to read it, even though the characters, obviously modeled on Siegfried and Roy, are much modern than the Victorian magicians I tend to favor Ever since watching Arrested Development, I cannot think about modern magicians without getting The Final Countdown stuck in my head Anyway, I was not disappointed While sections were rather difficult to follow and I would have liked a bit explanation about some parts, I found it sometimes funny, sometimes heartbreaking, but always engaging. Really great story about the world of Vegas magicians and magic in general Takes us from flim flammery across to the other side of real magic and a yearning for something Main characters are thinly veiled knock offs of Siegfried and Roy with a hilarious background story Story is told on three different narrative threads featuring the same characters in the past present and future which is a great device for drawing out suspense One of my new Quarrington favourites.
