I rated this a half star more than you, because I do think it was well written. I totally agree about the two different styles and how things slowed down in the second half.
"Well realized characters, despite being awful." Well said and I couldn't agree more.
Unlike you though, I read one book in between and now I'm on to The Magus.
Yeah, I don't bother with half stars, and the writing, while good, was not worth the difference between "I liked it" and "I really liked it" to me. :)

I can definitely see picking up another of his books relatively quickly, if only because I can't quite think of anyone else like him.
