Dagon is the name of a powerful philistine deity of fertility) seems to be rambling rather aimlessly among rather heterogeneous pursuits. Is [...]

    3. Full Disclosure: I couldn't finish it. Inexplicably I read about 3/4 of it, hoping it would deliver on some early seeds of promise. But I just couldn't keep going. Predictable characters and plot, dreadful dialog. It would be interesting to compare the number of pages on the merits of party drugs to the number of pages devoted to the actual plot, but suffice it to say that various party drugs are the most well-defined characters.
