] There was a period toward the end of the book where i thought unaccountably of Commedia D'ell Arte -- with characters running in and out of doors just as others vanish. There too the characters are cardboard, one dimensional, and the emphasis is on the action rather than the character development. Maybe this is not a good analogy, but it flashed through my mind when all of the players showed up in London at once.
I was thinking the same thing just last night. The characters almost seem like "stock characters" from a farce/melodrama
