I like the simpler, revised version better. The circuit board design is an interesting design, but it relies solely upon a gimmick, which in my opinion would not age well, and look outdated very quickly. It's like getting a sleeve tattoos while drunk one weekend: it seems like the coolest idea at the time, until you start to slow down your partying days, and you want to appear more responsible in a job interview.
"Then each time Fleetwood would be not so much overcome by remorse as bedazzled at having been shown the secret backlands of wealth, and how sooner or later it depended on some act of murder, seldom limited to once."
