I think they were right, and I believe that this was part of the plan. The characters didn't matter beyond their ability to shock and appall and deliver the gore. This was a "Can you top this?" epistle, a book that celebrates the school of "no redeeming characteristics" fiction.
    I found the book tiresome and after a while, boring, for much the same reason I find TV shows of auto accidents and Friday the 13th part levendeleven boring, but Teran didn't stumble into or wander aimlessly through this freak show. He knew exactly what he was doing, whom he was lionizing and whom he hoped to piss off and offend.
