This is a book I ultimately should love - it's a grand, Narnia-esque epic fantasy with interesting characters (even if I think the lead character is frustratingly bad) and a good sense of adventure.

Instead, I find myself skimming it over and over, just watching the wheels turn from one scene to the next without much care.

I get that this book has quite the following, and I'm glad I read at least half of it, I guess, but I don't think this is the type of book that really gets me going. Maybe I missed the boat or something, but I was disappointed.
