4.5Well, it has mind-screwy shiz and I really like that sort of stuff, so *shrug. (Brainwashing :D)I didn't really understand the paranormal element...Was it the fire out of his hands thing? I kind of ignored it; it kind of detracted from the story as a whole because it wasn't necessary. It was a superfluous complication that made what would have been nicely balanced into a off-kilter confusion. In fact, I even forgot it was there until I read a couple of reviews talking about it.
