So far, I don't really like the book. The out of order stories disrupt the book's flow. I can't just fall into the book like I can with many other books because often I have to think or look back on a previous chapter. This is worsened by Egan's writing style. Jennifer Egan changes her writing style every chapter. This is supposed to help her convey the messages she wants to convey from each story. To me though, it feels very forced. The changing writing style further disrupts the book's flow and makes it difficult to connect different chapters.
I also don't like any of the characters that have been introduced so far. Most of the character's are hard to connect with. Sasha is a perfect example of this. She has uncontrollable urges to steal things from people. This problem is extremely uncommon and unrealistic (to me at least), so I have trouble connecting to Sasha. This flaw is also worsened by Egan's writing style. By changing points of view each story, Egan doesn't allow time for the reader to build a rapport with her characters. I hope that my mind will be changed as I read further, though.
