Stilted dialogue, hard to believe characters, science that on its face seems completely implausible, so what is to like? And yes, I did read the entire book, although at a faster and faster pace, trying to find out why the President is uncharacteristically irrational. Did he start secretly eating at Millie's?
And why has Doctor Lou, an ER doc who has surely treated folks with concussions, taken up getting his brain rattled around in his skull as a hobby? Is this to develop empathy with his patients who have inadvertently taken a header?
