History of a Pleasure Seeker by Richard Mason

History of a Pleasure Seeker - Richard  Mason

The first half of the book was an interesting read, and I wanted to see more with the main character. However, the second half, following his travels, weren't quite as interesting, and the "to be continued" ending was rather disappointing. If there is a sequel, I think I'll pass.
