Music of Razors

Cameron Rogers' Music of Razors is an interesting first novel.  The writing in any individual section is great, and his central concepts are interesting, like an angel who God punishes by removing any recollection of his existence from creation.

Unfortunately, I didn't think the whole thing held up so well.  The ending is confusing, partly because it felt like Rogers piled up too many concepts, and in the end he just couldn't balance them all out successfully.  I'd read his next book, though -- this one showed a lot of promise.
