All the Lives He led - Frederik Pohl


...Although I generally enjoy Pohl's writing, I don't think this is a particularly strong example of his work. There is the slightly satiric tone that is his trademark of course. It reads quickly but when it comes to the plot and the first person narration I'm not terribly impressed. The scope and impact of the events Brad describes seem to be a bit of far-reaching than the first person point of view can carry. All the Lives He Led is an entertaining read but doesn't reach the level of some of Pohl's other novels. Maybe something a real completest will want to read but I very much doubt it will end up on any of the year's best lists...
