I've given up. I'm 200+ pages into the book and I just don't get it. There doesn't seem to be a cohesive plot and there's possibly too much implied knowledge about English history. I know there was massive fires, that the Dutch and English and French had some spats but it still feels like I'm missing something that'll gel the story-line for me. I don't have that so this is one of the first books ever I'm consciously decided not to finish. Too bad because I loved everything else he wrote and read.
