Reading in Wonderland

I'm halfway through and I like it so far, but I do feel that sometimes, especially with Leo Gursky's chapters, the author is trying too hard to let that particular character's voice come through. I'm getting a little annoyed with the "And yet." and "But." A few times is okay, but three or four times in one page! It gets a bit in the way of my reading. I was thinking of coming up with a drinking game for it ;)
Thoughts?

I actually finished and moved on to Esme Lennox but hadn't made a post yet.
I loved the book but I did get tired of the "and yet" additions. I liked it at first, I liked it for awhile, and then at one point it actually distracted me from the reading. I felt that in her attempt to make the novel different she let it become a little too confusing at times. I liked the idea of all the different ties and narrators and it all tied together in the end but I'm certain I missed some things along the way. Sometimes i'd think one person was narrating and it would turn out to be someone else entirely.
