I wasn't enjoying the first half of this novel -- I found the writing style a bit too ethereal, and I wasn't fond of any of the characters. Then, as if a switch had been thrown, I suddenly found the characters and their situations fascinating, and I was rooting for a happy ending to a number of their stories. I'm remain ambiguous about the flashback interludes (they seem too short to call them "chapters"), but overall this reading experience ended far more satisfactorily than it began.
