Just finished reading that , good read.  I still go back to Bruner's  big
three for the slightly forward reaching spec as a benchmark, Rainbows End
his em.

I loved the Belief Circle ideas and subplots, extrapolating out that the
spook agencies are nothing more than belief circles:)-

Was it just me or did the last 20 pages read like the first 20 pages of the
next book in the series?
