Read in April, 2011

I tried to finish, I really did. There's a lot to like and Simmons did a lot of terrific work here, but ultimately the over-long, lush descriptions and the plodding story, while accurate and reflective of the era, were all too much for me. Whenever things threatened to grab me, the narrative wound up going on way too long. I recognize the quality of the work here, as well as the fact that there are readers who'll enjoy the (to put it politely) leisurely pacing, but not me.
