I wanted to like this. Really, really wanted to like this. However, I found myself getting impatient and skipping large parts of the book. I found this to be a book-in-search-of-an-editor. Occasionally, one finds an author who is so in love with the characters that s/he forgets that we, the readers don't need to know *everything* about the characters, that some things may be interesting to the author, in fact necessary to the author as s/he develops the characters, but don't, in fact, add to the story being presented. This is one of those books. When you can skip large sections, which I *rarely* do and still feel like you know all the relevant facts about the story, about the nuances of those in the story, well... you have to wonder if this slipped through while the editor was on vacation. I don't think the story matched the description on the back of the book. Disappointing.
One word. Tedius. Read the Wikipedia entry on the medieval text "Hypnerotomachia Poliphili" if that's what you are after. If you want dream sequences, James Joyce's "Ulysses" is a much more interesting selection. Likewise, Proust. Unless for some reason you are intensely interested in the Princeton University campus infrastructure, save your time, skip "The Rule of Four". Not recommended.
