Writing style of Issola

Did anybody else notice that Issola was written with a certain nod
towards television.  One of the things struck me was the habit SKZB had
in the book of putting a dramatic line or paragraph right at the end of
a chapter as a TV Show would just before an ad break.

The one that particularly springs to mind is 'Paitence my ass; I'm going
to go out an kill something' at the end of chapter 8.
