There is a quote on the back of the book that tells (and in my opinion, warns) the reader that patience when reading this novel will be rewarded. They weren't joking! This novel is well written, but each sentence is almost painfully crafted and the attention to each word choice within, in my opinion, detracts from the overall story.
