Dreamland by Kevin Baker

Dreamland - Kevin Baker

The multiple plots were initially confusing, but they proved quite interesting once I sorted them out. The details and characters kept me going, though I was disappointed with the somewhat sudden ending that left some things very uncertain. What exactly happened to Esther and Kid Twist, I wanted to know? The suggested ending wasn't exactly satisfying or positive.
