And I hope it turns out better than NO HERO, which I found very disappointing. I'm speaking of the plane that the main schmuck "saves," only to find out they set the whole thing up(including killing the flight crew) so he'd feel like a hero.
Except that they TELL him, right away, that's what it was all about and he goes crazy. As far as I could see, it was because Ellis had to explain some stuff to the reader and that was an opportunity for that. But it makes no sense. They make him "feel like a hero" only to knowingly ruin it a moment later? What's the point then? And then, though they've been keeping stuff from him up to then, suddenly, like in many Ellis stories, they get implausibly truthful and detailed.
This seems to be a danger when Ellis is getting close to his conclusion. Suddenly he's all about telling not showing. I am hoping the narration style in this will pre-empt that.
