My first impulse was to write it off as consummate pulp. Enjoy it, sure, but mindless enjoyment.
It's got something, though. Something profound. Something...evocative...?
I know, I was surprised, too. It's weird, but it's actually there. ACTUALLY THERE.
That being said, some of it was rather melodramatic *cough cough*
There were proofreading errors that annoyed me. There's probably more, but I was reading it as a consummate pulp story, so prolly stuff that might have otherwise bothered me didn't bother me.
I guess, I'll give it a slight 3+, but not a full 4, and forego the "consummate-pulp" shelf by way of compromise.
