I had a hard time sticking with this book - in fact, I had to take a break in the middle and read a couple of other books before going back and reading the rest. And yet, in retrospect, I can really appreciate the complex plot and round-about narration. And the ending is well played. I'm glad I stuck with it, but I wouldn't recommend this book if you're looking for a quick read.
