I have found Studs strength in capturing the voice of the common man without interjecting himself. I loved Race which also very much speaks to our times as well as his- and gave that 5 stars.
This one I abandoned about a third the way through. The characters all seemed to be well heeled executives types, who just weren't as interesting as the people in Race. Perhaps just me, but the rich and famous, here, bored me.
