Persevere and hold on to follow the characters. Every time the story shifted to another protaganist I had to remind myself who they were and what had transpired several chapters before. It is a common trait of all the Wild Cards novels but not an easy read. I enjoyed it as always however. It will be interesting to see how they handle these books in the t.v. series which they have been promising for more than a year now.
