Thys bhuck ys seew ehnnoieng!!!

There is much to love about this book so far. I'm nearly halfway through it, and the world-building has been intriguing enough so far as to propell me forward.

But I'm afraid I'll have to shelve it for awhile. The ridiculous "have to use all my Scrabble tiles" method of character name spelling is too much of a barrier for my brain right now. I'm constantly having to dart back and forth during conversations to see who is speaking. In a story filled with intricate intrigues--which are difficult enough to track on their own--there is just no way to become absorbed when all the characters blur together in a haze of Zh and Y. Perhaps someday soon I'll become remotivated to try. But for now I'm hoping Mary Doria Russell does a better job of making her story accessible.
