Philip Jose Farmer - The Other Log of Phileas Fogg

Really I wanted to like this. Whole concept of a mixed universe is so very intriguing but alas this just doesn't work for me.  This is the second Farmer book I have muddled through.  The first was about Tarzan.  Characters and imagination is great, it's just his writing style is so matter fact.  Instead of telling the story he is almost writing like a comic book where he inserts these thought bubbles but the thought bubbles are his thoughts not the storys.  It just makes the story read poorly and you lose sight of the actual story.
