One thought that hit me while reading the story was, that Hawke's male protagonists are so self-involved, that you just have to wonder, how self-involved he himself is.
The ending is not bad, even though for the protagonist to sit in a cell with his angel and devil is a bit much. The thoughts laid down in the final chapters are interesting and worth considering. Still you have to ask yourself, whether such a long prelude was necessary, to come to this point, or whether a somewhat shortened story wouldn't have served the same purpose just as well.
In the end it is a story about growing up. Some of the anxieties about this process, which are mentioned in the final chapter, to me were somewhat reminiscent of the works of J. D. Salinger.
