This book did not engage me much at all. At the beginning I had to acclimatize my ear to the dialect and wrap my head around the many jazz references. This led to some skipping of pages. Throughout the whole narrative I felt more for Chip, the friend, than I did for Sid the narrator (maybe I was supposed to). At times the transition from WWII Germany and France to modern day Poland was a bit awkward and I lost the rhythm of the tale. It was an interesting premise and I had some thoughts as to the outcome, but the real ending left me just a bit hanging - a big lead-up to what I thought was a fizzle.
