I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with this book; I love a lot of the ideas and I first read it years ago because a friend said it was her very favourite Mary Stewart book, but I remember finding it hard going. I don't know why now, although I suspect the level of suspense got to me - proving, really, that it is indeed a good book that has achieved its aim.
So after a first chapter, I chickened out and decided to read something else and come back to it. With only one chapter reread, I've really only covered the stuff I remember from the previous time I read the book, so I can let it sit for a bit longer before I need to go back to it.
I WILL read it, as I'm reading through the Mary Stewart books in order and if I want to get to any of the later ones, I have to read this one first.(less)
