Mixed emotions. I really enoyed this, but at the same time it was just too long. I certainly did not anticipate the end so that's always a plus. Too much of the story focuses on John's ranting about the stupidity and arrogance of the American government. I loved the eccentricities of Owen but I didn't need to hear about what he had to say about so many subjects. The part about The Voice just got on my nerves. But very good over all.
