This is a tough one. I couldn't decide if I like it or not. The issue I had (funninly enough, not I've finished it maybe it wasn't an issue at all)was I found it sort of vanished up it's own arse. Saying that I don't mean no disrespect to Barker, at all. It's just I think the ideas in this book were so hughe and opened up so many possibilities that I doubt Barker realised the scale he'd set himself. That's proberly why fans have been waiting 20 years give or take for the proposed 3rd book in the series. In all honesty I don't think Barker can even begin to guess how he is going to finish his trilogy. Overall a good and ambitious tale but v.frustrating as one suspects the final book will never be written.

Bozz So far so good. Took a good 100 pages for anybody from Great And Secret show to show up. Not sure I like the new characters so far...
