I finally finished Cory's Book Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom this weekend. I enjoyed the read, made me wish I had a big ol' stack of thoughtful science fiction to enjoy. I had a hard time at first; the prose seemed a bit too jargony, the characters hard to grasp. But I got brought around right in the middle with a vignette about Zed, a woman our protagonist had been in love with in the past. It was very touching and personal and did a great job of framing the character and offsetting the narrative.
